Albacore (Thunnus alalunga) is a highly migratory pelagic species distributed in all tropical and temperate oceans. Recent analyses using both mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and nuclear DNA markers have demonstrated genetic subdivision within and between Atlantic and Pacific populations. However, although numerous biological differences have been reported for Atlantic and Mediterranean albacore, the genetic differentiation for these basins has not been demonstrated. We characterized 373 base pairs… 
Genetic isolation between Atlantic and Mediterranean albacore populations inferred from mitochondrial and nuclear DNA markers
TLDR
Molecular data indicate that gene flow between the Atlantic and Mediterranean albacore populations have been considerably restricted and strongly suggest these populations should continue to be treated as two distinct management units.
Adaptive markers distinguish North and South Pacific Albacore amid low population differentiation
TLDR
No genetic evidence was found for population substructure within the North Pacific, and no loci appeared to distinguish males from females, but potential functions for the putatively adaptive loci were identified and an annotated Albacore genome is required.
Genetic analysis of white marlin (Tetrapturus albidus) stock structure
TLDR
The genetic basis of stock structure ofwhite marlin was inferred from analyses of five tetranucleotide repeat microsatellite loci and the mitochondrial (mt)DNA control region of white marlin from four geographic regions in the Atlantic Ocean, which indicated the stock was seriously overexploited.
Microsatellite analysis of albacore tuna (Thunnus alalunga): population genetic structure in the North-East Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea
TLDR
Paired FST values showed that the SWP, NEA and MED stocks were significantly distinct from one another, thus corroborating findings in previous studies based on mitochondrial DNA, nuclear DNA (other than microsatellites) and allozyme analyses.
Worldwide genetic structure of albacore Thunnus alalunga revealed by microsatellite DNA markers
TLDR
Genetic information is provided to clarify albacore population delimitation, which is a key factor to reach the demanded sustainable management of this resource.
Genetic Analysis of Blue Marlin (Makaira nigricans) Stock Structure in the Atlantic Ocean
The genetic basis of stock structure of blue marlin (Makaira nigricans Lacepede 1802 ) in the Atlantic ocean was inferred from analyses of mitochondrial control region sequences. Blue marlin were
GENETIC ANALYSIS OF BLUE MARLIN (MAkAIRA NIGRICANS) STOCk STRUCTURE IN THE ATLANTIC OCEAN
TLDR
Genetic data from this study support management of Atlantic blue marlin as a single, Atlantic-wide stock and indicate that the control region harbors a significant amount of genetic variation.
Single nucleotide polymorphism discovery in albacore and Atlantic bluefin tuna provides insights into worldwide population structure.
TLDR
The development of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in albacore and BFT and the application of these SNPs to survey genetic variability across the geographic ranges of these tunas are reported.
New Nuclear SNP Markers Unravel the Genetic Structure and Effective Population Size of Albacore Tuna (Thunnus alalunga)
TLDR
The genetic diversity and the adaptive potential of this population have not been significantly affected by overfishing and the short- and long-term effective population sizes were estimated, and results showed no historical decline for this population.

Global population structure of albacore (Thunnus alalunga) inferred by RFLP analysis of the mitochondrial ATPase gene
TLDR
Results suggest greater gene flow between albacore of the northern and southern hemispheres (within oceans) than between the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans.
Preliminary study of albacore (Thunnus alalunga) stock differentiation inferred from microsatellite DNA analysis
TLDR
Five albacore samples were drawn from archival stock materials in the National Research Institute of Far Seas Fisheries laboratory and differentiation of allele frequencies between and among samples was estimated by a fixation index (FST) with Arlequin version 1.1.
Genetic analysis of tuna populations, Thunnus thynnus thynnus and T. alalunga
TLDR
The level of population differentiation found for Atlantic northern bluefin tuna and albacore fits the pattern that has generally been observed in tunas, with genetic differences on a broad rather than a more local scale.
Genetic evidence for inter-oceanic subdivision of bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) populations
TLDR
Analyses of the frequency distribution indicated that samples of bigeye tuna from the Atlantic Ocean were genetically distinct from those found in the Indian and Pacific oceans, rejecting the null hypothesis of a single global population ofbigeye tuna.
Structure and migration corridors in Pacific populations of the Swordfish Xiphius gladius, as inferred through analyses of mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
Results reveal a pelagic biogeographic pattern heretofore unrecognized in the Pacific, and reject the null hypothesis that Pacific populations of swordfish are unstructured and comprise only a single homogeneous stock.
Mitochondrial DNA control region sequences indicate extensive mixing of swordfish (Xiphias gladius) populations in the Atlantic Ocean
TLDR
Hypervariable segments of the control region of mitochondrial DNA were sequenced in 35 swordfish from three regions of the Atlantic, as well as in 8 and 7 individuals from the Pacific and Mediterranean regions, respectively, finding haplotypes from clade II predominated in the Mediterranean, and thus likely originated there during Pleistocene marine reg...
Phylogeography and population history of Atlantic mackerel (Scomber scombrus L.): a genealogical approach reveals genetic structuring among the eastern Atlantic stocks
TLDR
In the eastern Atlantic, historical population range expansion, presumably in connection with recolonization of northern areas after the last glaciation, is suggested to be the main factor determining mtDNA lineage distribution.
Mitochondrial control region variability and global population structure in the swordfish, Xiphias gladius
TLDR
Global population structure in swordfish was assessed by sequencing a 300 base pair segment of the 5′ end of mitochondrial DNA control region from 159 swordfish collected in three ocean basins over the years 1988 to 1994, indicating that swordfish populations are structured on a global scale.
Genetic divergence between Atlantic and Indo‐Pacific stocks of bigeye tuna (Thunnus obesus) and admixture around South Africa
TLDR
The results clearly indicate that not only gene flow, but also fish migration, between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans are severely restricted, and that fishes from these distinct stocks are intermingling around South Africa.
