This paper presents data on the polymorphism of inter simple sequence repeats of DNA in the silver crucian carp Carassius auratus gibelio in water bodies in the southern part of Western Siberia. The share of polymorphic ISSR-PCR bands in silver crucian carp populations from different lakes varied from 40 to 70%, and Nei’s gene diversity index varied from 0.16 to 0.25. The genetic diversity indices were lower in the populations that were largely represented by females than in bisexual ones. The highest levels of genetic polymorphism were revealed in populations with diploid–triploid complexes. The gene diversity index of the silver crucian carp population is positively correlated with the reservoir size (r = 0.90, p = 0.015; Rs = 0.74, p = 0.036).
