Todarodes pacificus is an important species for commercial fisheries, but its reproductive biology has been little understood. We isolated 11 polymorphic microsatellite loci from this species. These loci provided highly polymorphic microsatellite markers with four to 26 alleles per locus. The observed and expected heterozygosities ranged from 0.150 to 1.000, and from 0.660 to 0.974, respectively. These markers will be useful for research about the mating systems and genetic diversity of T. pacificus.
