Genetic diversity can reflect the origin and evolution of species. It can also inform the practices of genetic conservation, breeding and genetic improvement, even stabilization of marine ecosystem. In the past two decades, accumulating studies have focused on the genetic diversity of major marine fish and shellfish in China. Here we summarize the achievements of this area and its application to taxonomy, germplasm identification, phylogenetic evolutionary biology, analysis of population genetic structure, genetic breeding and so on. We hope to provide new insights into research on genetic diversity of marine animals, and promote the healthy development of the aquaculture industry in order to achieve the management and sustainable use of marine animals.
