The hypothesis that a single stock of weakfish, Cynoscion regalis, existed in the Middle Atlantic was tested. Using starch gel electrophoresis we identified two polymorphic loci (6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase and malate dehydrogenase) out of a total of 25 protein loci surveyed. Statistical analysis of allelic frequencies revealed that the populations were statistically indistinguishable.
