Abstract: The movement of Atlantic Bluefin Tuna (ABFT) across international boundaries necessitates traceability strategies that may accurately provide information needed for its stock assessments. The Mediterranean Sea is a main contributor to ABFT's reproduction, global population's genetic diversity and fitness. In this study, the ABFT's genetic variability of this species was investigated through 193 samples of adult ABFT collected from Spain, Turkey and Malta – across a longitudinal distance of 3400 km. 13 microsatellite loci were analysed (8 of which newly tested) as genetic markers for this ABFT population study. Allele richness measured per locus and sampling location varied from 1.89 to 8.88, taking into account rarefaction.
