DOI : 10.4194/GA452 Viewed : 1771 - Downloaded : 1187 A new record of a marble trout mtDNA haplotype known to be restricted to Adriatic basin (called marmoratus lineage within Salmo trutta complex) has been reported from Eşen Stream in the Aegean Sea basin of southeastern Turkey, based on sequence data of the mitochondrial DNA control region. The results of this study showed a single unique haplotype from this population, called MATR1. Phylogenetic analyses of this haplotype along with other haplotypes belonging to different mitochondrial DNA lineages of the S. trutta complex confirmed the existence of the marmoratus lineage in Turkey, suggesting a possible river capture between the Adriatic and Aegean Sea basins until the last (Würmian) marine regression.
