Abstract
    In order to elucidate the possible existence of genetically separated stocks of Meganyctiphanes norvegica in the north-east Atlantic Ocean, a population genetic analysis of the species was commenced. In particular we wanted to investigate how possible genetic cohesiveness between samples corresponds to the physical oceanographic structure in the region. An electrophoretic analysis of allele distributions at five enzyme loci identified in previous studies as being polymorphic was screened for variation between samples. 1 043 individuals from eight locations were studied and with the genetic resolution attained with allozymes on the loci studied, samples appear to represent a single panmictic population.
