Twenty-three novel polymorphic microsatellite markers were developed from c. 2000 expressed sequence tags of Atlantic cod Gadus morhua L. Gene identity was determined at 12 loci, confirming the associated microsatellites as type I markers. These microsatellite markers provide useful tools for studies of population genetics and reproductive ecology and for constructing linkage maps of G. morhua.
