Supporting fisheries management with genomic tools: a case study of kingklip (Genypterus capensis) off southern Africa

Melissa Jane Schulze, Sophie Von Der Heyden & Romina Henriques
Kingklip, Genypterus capensis, is a valuable fish resource in southern African waters, with a wide geographic distribution spanning South Africa and Namibia. Previous studies have provided evidence for multiple stocks in South Africa, but the extent of stock structuring across the Southern African region remains unclear. In this study, we genotyped over 40 000 SNPs to characterise the spatial distribution of genomic variation for G. capensis throughout its core distribution. Results suggest that fish sampled...
