    Silver pomfret (Pampus argenteus), is a commercially important pelagic fish in Middle East, Indian and other south East Asian countries, and more over a potential fin fish species for mariculture. The overfishing and overexploitation of this valuable species can reduce their chance of successful reproduction and this may result in changes in species genetic variability and population structure. Despite its importance as a valuable marine resource, little is known about its genetic diversity and population structure of this species in Indian waters. Therefore, there was an urgent need to study the baseline information on genetic stock structuring of this species across its range of natural distribution along Indian waters. Identifying the population structure of commercially important native resources would be the base for genetic upgradation, fisheries management and conservation programs and is significant for every nation. The present study entitled "Population Genetic Structure of Silver pomfret (Pampus argenteus) along Indian coast" aims to determine the fine-scale population structure in P. argenteus collected from five geographical locations along Indian coast using mitochondrial ATPase 6/8 gene and polymorphic microsatellite markers. This study investigates the level of genetic diversity and population genetic structure of the species along the Indian coast and a possibility of population size contraction, since there are indications about the catch decline in the past two decades.
