Eight microsatellite loci, which have been published for other anguillid eels species, were crossprimed (Table 2).

The peaks in the values of RC in the means and SDs of [F.sub.30%] and [F.sub.50%] when K and [L.sub.[infinity]] were around 40-60% possibly resulted from the use of a length-dependent maturation curve for anguillids (Davey and Jellyman, 2003) in the calculation of SPR.

Examples are the phyllosoma larvae of the decapod crustacean Panulirus cygnus, inferred from overlapping annual cohorts in the plankton (Phillips et al., 1979), and leptocephali of anguillid eels with larval durations of 1 to 3 years (Castle, 1984).
A number of other staff members, were very helpful: in particular Curtis Lewis (figures), David Colby (statistics), Peter Hanson (SAS), Patti Marraro (literature), Jon Hare (seabed drifter, oceanographic current patterns), Jeff Govoni (manuscript), and Allyn Powell (anguillid biology).
Early in the last century, the Danish oceanographer Johannes Schmidt succeeded in collecting small anguillid leptocephali in the Sargasso Sea thousands of kilometers away from their growth habitats in Europe and North America, which indicated that the two species of Atlantic fresh-water eels make remarkably long spawning migrations (1).
Because of these studies, species-specific genetic markers can be used to identify all species of anguillid leptocephali (9).
This is the first description of the distribution of anguillid leptocephali identified using genetic markers from Indonesian waters, and these data suggest that as many as five species of the genus Anguilla may use the Indonesian waters as an area for spawning and larval development.
