The amplified fragment-length polymorphism (AFLP) technique was used to identify sex-specific markers in bluegill sunfish. A total of 12 835 loci were produced by 256 primer combinations, of which nine (0ยท73‰) exhibited presumed sex-associated amplifications in the pooled samples; however, none of which revealed sex specificity upon individual evaluation.
