  • F is reported for all possible pairwise comparisons of allele frequencies at eight microsatellite loci across four year classes (cohorts) of red drum (1986-1989), pooled across seven localities sampled in the northern Gulf of Mexico. Pairwise values were averaged to estimate variance effective size for the entire red drum population. Estimates of F appear consistent across year classes and loci.
