Escapees from commercial fish farms are a relatively common occurrence. It is important to identify these escapees and to evaluate their potential genetic impact on wild populations. Molecular genetic marks are the most suitable “tags” for identification as they are permanent, do not require fish handling and are traceable through further generations. Molecular tags using AFLPs and microsatellites were found to be reliable markers for identification of simulated escapees. They were so accurate as to even trace the particular farm and strain of origin. This method is likely to be an effective method to identify escapees in the field and become a tool in responsible aquaculture to monitor the amount of escapees surviving in the wild after accidental releases and the effects on genetic diversity of natural populations. Thus, extensive genetic tagging in gilthead bream broodstocks in the Mediterranean is recommended (Miggiano et al., 2005).
