Previous behavioral observations of Loligo pealeii revealed the potential for multiple paternity within individual egg capsules, each containing 100 to 300 eggs. Five egg capsules, sam- pled from 3 nearshore locations over 2 yr, were tested for multiple paternity using 3 microsatellite loci. The minimum number of potential fathers was derived from the number of different alleles pre- sent in the progeny. All 5 egg capsules exhibited multiple paternity: genetic markers of at least 4 fathers were… Expand
