Abstract

By means of starch gel electrophoresis, the genetic variations of 16 natural or cultured Crassostrea gigas populations from the French Atlantic coasts were compared with one from Miyagi (Japan). In the 17 populations examined, allele frequencies of the 13 loci analysed showed 4 monomorphic loci for the same allele in French populations and only 3 for the Japanese population. Two particular alleles were detected exclusively in the Japanese population (Aat-190 and αGpd-1112). Nevertheless, the frequency of the most common allele for each locus was the same in France and in Japan. The genetic variation criteria (proportion of polymorphie loci, heterozygosities, mean number of alleles per locus), which were relatively high, were of the same order of magnitude in Japan and in France, including a population hatched in captivity. The genetic identity criteria show a very high similarity between the populations from Japan and France. Within the latter, multivariate analysis revealed four estuarine populations with characteristic genotypes.
