Project name Genetic population structure of scallops (Pecten fumatus) in southern Australia
Project description
Marine species with long larval periods like scallops (larval period of approximately one month) are typically assumed to have widespread dispersal and thus comprise open populations that exhibit minimal population structure. Using allozyme genetic techniques appeared to confirm this assumption, demonstrating a very low level of genetic divergence between populations of commercial scallop (Pecten fumatus) in south-eastern Australia, particularly in Bass Strait. However, with the development of improved genetic techniques, the assumption of widespread dispersal and random distribution of marine larvae has been challenged.

The idea of testing the assumption that commercial scallops within south-eastern Australia constitute one stock has been a common topic of discussion for several years. Fishers and managers from all three jurisdictions (Victoria, Tasmania and the Commonwealth) have expressed great interest in determining the population stock status of the species throughout its commercial fishery range.

The aim of this project is to determine the broad and fine-scale stock status of commercial scallops in south-eastern Australia, as well as the effects of fishing methods and spawner density on recruitment success.

Dataset description
Microsatellite genotype datafile.

1. Data was exported from GenAlex v 6.4. 
2. Missing alleles are represented by 0. 
3. Data is separated by commas. 
4. Each data line ends with a return. 

1. First line consists of number of microsatellite loci genotyped, total number of samples genotyped, number of locations, sample size from location 1, sample size from location 2 etc. 
2. Second line consists of title of file, including species name. 
3. Third and following lines consist of followed by location name followed by latitude and longitude of location in decimal degrees.  
4. Next line consists of names of microsatellite loci. 
5. Next line and following lines consist of Sample code name consisting of letters or numbers or combination of both, Location code or number, Allele a from first microsatellite locus, Allele b from first microsatellite locus, Allele a from second microsatellite locus, Allele b from second microsatellite locus and so on.
