Badis badis is a threatened ornamental freshwater fish in the Indian scenario. We have studied RAPD based locus specific population genetic structure of this species in the eastern sub-Himalayan hotspot region of West Bengal state of India, known as the Terai and Dooars. We have studied six populations of Badis badis from the Terai region riverine streams and seven populations from the Dooars region riverine streams. We have used twenty different RAPD decamer primers which allowed amplification of 184 loci in the Terai populations and 134 loci in the Dooars region Badis populations. Observed number of locus specific alleles, effective number of alleles, Shannon’s diversity index and Nei’s genetic diversity were analyzed. The population differentiation of different Badle is badis populations was measured through PhiPT analyses.
