The present study was aimed to analyze the genetic variation C. batrachus (Magur) from three natural population viz., Andhra Pradesh, Assam and West Bengal states of India using the microsatellite markers. Four microsatellites showed high polymorphism with allele numbers ranging from 4 to 9. Observed heterozygosity at each locus was more than 0.50 and the polymorphic information content (PIC) for the four loci ranged from 0.62 to 0.82, indicating that these loci can be used discriminate Magur populations of India. FST values ranged from 0.072 to 0.098 and it appears that there was little genetic differentiation between the Magur populations.

Keywords: C. batrachus, Genetic variation, Magur, Microsatellite.
