Seventeen polymorphic microsatellite loci were isolated and characterized for Coilia nasus. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 3 to 18, and the observed and expected heterozygosity ranged from 0.3333 to 0.9583 and from 0.3032 to 0.9111, respectively. These markers will be useful for further studies on the genetic diversity and population structure of this species.
