Study deals with peculiarities of four genetic loci alleles’ distribution in different populations of common kilka from some parts of its range. Geographical differentiation in muscular lactate dehydrogenase-A (LDH-A*) allele frequencies between populations was found. Allele LDH-A*100 frequency is higher in native range. Allele LDH-A*120 prevails in Volga populations of kilka probably due to presence of landlocked freshwater form in historical perspective.
