Genetic Analysis of Arowana (Scleropages formosus, Osteoglossidae) in Two Major Habitats at the Tasik Bera Lake, Pahang and at the Endau River, Johor, Malaysia


A study was carried out to monitor the genetic variability of three wild popula-tions of the Asian green arowana (Scleropages formosus). Two populations of green arowana were obtained from the Tasik Bera Lake, Pahang in 2000 and 2002 while the other population was collected from the Endau River, Johor, in 2002. The average number of alleles per locus was low and departures from the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium were observed in all the populations depending on the locus. Among 11 microsatellite loci, eight significantly deviated from the Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium (HWE) (p
