Abstract: In this study, the genetic diversity and relationship of artificial hybrid Jiyan-1 puffer and their parents (T. flavidus ♀ and T. rubripes ♂) were evaluated using 15 microsatellite markers. The average number of alleles (Na), observed heterozygosity (Ho), and expected heterozygosity (He) of T. flavidus were higher than the average values of T. rubripes. Jiyan-1 puffer showed a relatively high level of genetic diversity, with an average allele number of 6.467 and mean observed and expected heterozygosity of 0.560 and 0.592, respectively. UPGMA cluster analysis indicated that Jiyan-1 puffer inherited more genetic information from female parents. This study indicates that the microsatellite markers will be useful for investigation of genetic background of puffer fish, as well as better conservation and sustainable utilization of puffer fish in aquaculture.
