The Indian major carp Catla catla is indigenous to the major river systems of Northern India, Pakistan and Bangladesh, and is an important contributor to aquaculture production in India and Bangladesh. Five polymorphic microsatellite loci, developed from Catla catla are described and their utility in other major carp and cyprinid species is tested.
