Australian abalone species are subject to wild harvest and aquaculture production. This study characterized 125 polymorphic microsatellite markers in the blacklip abalone, Haliotis rubra, and evaluated cross-species amplification in Haliotis laevigata and Haliotis coccoradiata. Segregation analysis of a mapping family revealed non-amplifying polymerase chain reaction null alleles at 34 loci. Cross-species amplification was achieved for 89 loci. � 2006 The Authors.
