Tailor, Pomatomus saltatrix, from the eastern coast of Australia were sampled and typed for nine polymorphic gene loci, using allozyme electrophoresis. Tailor were also sampled from the western coast but were typed for only six of the same nine gene loci. East-coast samples did not differ significantly from each other, apart from the frequency of one allele at one gene locus, and are hence considered as one genetic stock. The west-coast tailor differed significantly from the east-coast tailor at two of the six gene loci and can be considered as a separate stock.
