Six enzymes glucose 6 phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD), xanthene de hydrogenase (XDH), alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH), peroxidase (PO), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and isocitric dehydrogenase (lDH) were examined to discover the genetic variation in Indian mackerel through polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. A significant difference in allelic frequency at XDH locus was observed between the eachin and Thotapally populations. Thotapally stocks exhibited a significant deviation (P< 0.05) from Hardy weinberg equillibrium. The proportion of polymorphic Joci was 0.777. The coefficient of identity and the genetic distance estimated were 0.9262 and 0.076 respectively.
