We studied the genetic variation and differentiation of five wild populations of Macrobrachium hainanense using SRAP markers. Samples were collected from Oujiang River (OJ), Minjiang River (MJ), Pearl River (PR), Wanquan River (WQ) and Changhuajiang River (CH). A total of 255 loci were detected, of which 47.05% were polymorphic. Proportion of polymorphic loci of the five populations ranked in the order: PR (43.92%) = WQ (43.92%) < MJ (46.67%) < CH (47.45%) < OJ (53.33%), while heterozygosity ranked as PR (0.1657) < WQ (0. 1763) < CH (0. 179) < OJ (0. 1839) < MJ (0. 1892), with an average of 0.1790. Shannon index ranked as PR (0.2543) < WQ (0.2658) < CH (0.2746) < MJ (0.2846) < OJ (0.2876), with an average of 0.2734. Analysis of molecular variation (AMOVA) revealed that 17.64% of the variance was among populations, which significantly affected the total variance ( P <0.001). Values of Gst, Nm and genetic distance suggested the genetic divergence among populations was relatively high (P < 0.001).
