The dusky kob (Argyrosomus japonicus) is a large, estuarine-dependent sciaenid fish that has been severely depleted in South African waters and that, in recent years, has received considerable attention from the local fish farming industry. Discovery and application of appropriate molecular markers is necessary to improve the understanding of wild(More)
Identifying genomic regions that may be under selection is important for elucidating the genetic architecture of complex phenotypes underlying adaptation to heterogeneous environments. A population genomic approach, using a classical neutrality test and various Fst-outlier detection methods was employed to evaluate genome-wide polymorphism data in order to(More)
The abalone, Haliotis midae, is an important aquaculture species in South Africa and the largest generator of revenue for the mariculture sector. Despite domestication of this species still being in the initial stages, significant differentiation has been observed between wild and cultured populations. The genetic consequences of founder effects have been(More)
