Molecular identification of the hybrid between the catfish species Pseudoplatystoma corruscans and Pseudoplatystoma reticulatum using a set of eight microsatellite markers.

Abstract

This study distinguished hybrids of surubim or pintado Pseudoplatystoma corruscans and cachara Pseudoplatystoma reticulatum from pure strains using a set of eight microsatellite markers and population assignment methods. Applications of this molecular tool range from certification of hybrid-free breeders in restocking conservation programmes to the identification of fish products lacking traditional morphological characteristics.
