ABSTRACT. The aim of the present study was to assess the genetic variability of whitefish (Coregonus lavaretus L.) from Lake Vistytis using microsatellite DNA markers. The genetic analysis indicated a high level of polymorphism at the investigated microsatellite loci with 78 alleles identified among four microsatellite markers. The average values of the He, Ho, and PIC parameters were 0.92, 0.85, and 0.89, respectively, and were high for all the studied loci. The present genetic analysis is the first molecular study of the whitefish population from Lake Vistytis.
