Abstract
The seaweed genus Fucus is a dominant component of intertidal shores throughout the North
Atlantic and North Pacific and has been the focus of considerable developmental, ecological,
and evolutionary research for the past century. Here, we present details of 21 expressed
sequence tag-derived simple sequence repeat markers (microsatellites). All 21 were poly-
morphic for F. serratus, which also display considerable cross-reactivity with the sister
species F. distichus (18) and the more distantly related F. vesiculosus (13), and F. spiralis (5).
