Abstract
    Mangroves provide habitat for Scylla serrata, a mangrove crab. But oceanographic factors and life history strategies of the species drive evolution in the ocean (Da Silva et al. 2011; Vogler et al. 2012). Therefore, the evolution of Scylla serrata is influenced by the physical and chemical properties of the ocean. As an important commercial commodity, population genetics studies conducted on the species will provide detailed information about its connectivity in the Western Indian Ocean (WIO).Aim: to assess the extent of gene flow and population structure of the species.
