Abstract
Zostera noltii is an important species of eelgrass occurring along European, north African,
Mediterranean, Black Sea and Azov Sea coasts. Nine microsatellite loci were developed and
no linkage disequilibrium was observed. Cross-amplification was observed for all loci
(polymorphic) in Z. japonica; only four loci amplified (monomorphic) in Z. marina.
