dc.description.abstract Kawakawa Euthynnus affinis is an epipelagic migratory tuna species, widely distributed in the tropical and subtropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. It constitutes the largest tuna fishery in Indian waters. In present study, restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) analysis of the mitochondrial D-loop region was employed to examine the levels of genetic diversity among kawakawa samples collected from eight main fishing zones (Veraval, Ratnagiri, Kochi, Kavaratti, Port-Blair, Tuticorin, Pondicherry and Vizag) along the Indian coast. A 500 bp segment of mitochondrial D-loop region was screened in 400 samples using six restriction enzymes (Rsa I, Alu I, Hinf I, Hha I, Msp I and Hae III), resulting in 13 composite morphs. Analysis of molecular variance (AMOVA) of mtDNA data revealed no significant genetic differentiation among sites (FST=-0.00446, P=0.84946). Results of the genetic analyses of present study suggest the single stock of kawakawa along the Indian coast.
