Genetic differentiation among juvenile samples of the European seabass (Dicentrarchus labrax) from the coast of Portugal is reported by means of two types of genetic markers: allozymes and microsatellites. Repeat samples were taken from 5 different nursery grounds (Aveiro, Foz, Obidos, Milfontes and Faro) along the coast of Portugal between November 1992 and February 1994. Starch-gel electrophoresis was used to assess the level and distribution of genetic variability of 38 loci. Six of these were found to be polymorphic at the 99% level and were used in population surveys: AAT-3*, ADA *, GPI-I *, GPI-2*, G3PDH-2*, SOD*. Statistical analysis revealed low but statistically significant multilocus F.'I (0.0108, p
