This article documents the addition of 112 microsatellite marker loci and 24 pairs of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) sequencing primers to the Molecular Ecology Resources Database. Loci were developed for the following species: Agelaius phoeniceus, Austrolittorina cincta, Circus cyaneus, Circus macrourus, Circus pygargus, Cryptocoryne(/i> x purpurea Ridl. Nothovar. Purpurea, Mya arenaria, Patagioenas squamosa, Prochilodus mariae, Scylla serrata and Scytalopus speluncae. These loci were cross-tested on the following species: Cryptocoryne x purpurea nothovar. Purpurea, Cryptocoryne affinis, Cryptocoryne ciliata, Cryptocoryne cordata var. cordata, Cryptocoryne elliptica, Cryptocoryne griffithii, Cryptocoryne minima, Cryptocoryne nurii and Cryptocoryne schulzei. This article also documents the addition of 24 sequencing primer pairs and 24 allele-specific primers or probes for Aphis glycines.©2011 Blackwell Publishing Ltd

The annual survey that scientists conduct on large research trawlers is an important source of information on the status of marine resources harvested in the estuary and northern Gulf of St. Lawrence. The main objective of the survey is to estimate the abundance and biomass of five commercially important species, i.e., Atlantic cod (Gadus morhua), Greenland halibut (Reinhardtius hippoglossoides), Acadian (Sebastes fasciatus) and deepwater (Sebastes mentella) redfish, and northern shrimp (Pandalus borealis). For several years, biologists have sought to improve the integration of stock status and ecosystem information, which has required a greater effort to better describe catches of other species of fish and invertebrates. The long-used sampling and observation protocol has evolved into a much more complex, detailed model. However, in implementing this protocol, difficulties have been encountered in accurately identifying ten or so species caught at each trawling station. This report provides a guide to the identification of fish species likely to be caught in surveys in the estuary and northern Gulf of St. Lawrence. This visual guide is designed as a practical tool for training staff and ensuring the quality of data collected. This report also describes the sampling and examination protocol for fish catches used for surveys conducted aboard the CGSS Teleost between 2004 and 2008 and presents a brief descriptive analysis of fish catches during this period.

An allozyme study was conducted to determine if Greenland halibut from the Gulf of St. Lawrence and the Northwest Atlantic area belong to genetically differentiated populations. Genetic variations were studied at 13 loci coding for 10 proteins. Results show a low degree of genetic differentiation in this species. Genetic differentiation among age groups within sampling sites is also weak, suggesting that the observed structure is temporally stable.
