Abstract

Alosa pseudoharengus, alewife, are an important species of herring both commercially and ecologically. In order to protect the species, it is necessary for researchers to have an understanding of alewife genetic composition. Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) are one of the molecular forensics techniques used to identify variances in genetic structure, and it was evaluated as an effective method. A probe was hybridized to DNA restricted with Hind III and viewed using chemiluminescence. A distinguished banding pattern appeared.
