  • We investigated the genetic structure of blacktip shark (Carcharhinus limbatus) continental nurseries in the northwestern Atlantic Ocean, Gulf of Mexico, and Caribbean Sea using mitochondrial DNA control region sequences and eight nuclear microsatellite loci scored in neonate and young‐of‐the‐year sharks. Significant structure was detected with both markers among nine nurseries (mitochondrial ΦST = 0.350, P < 0.001; nuclear ΦST = 0.007, P < 0.001) and sharks from the northwestern Atlantic… CONTINUE READING
