Genetic variation at five microsatellite loci and in mtDNA was surveyed in reintroduced and 'control' populations of roach (Rutilus rutilus) in Sweden. Microsatellite allelic richness and allele size ranges were significantly reduced in reintroduced populations, and mtDNA diversity was nearly significantly reduced in reintroduced populations. These measures of genetic variability were strongly correlated with lake characteristics that influence population size and food availability.
