  1. Sites with alignment gaps were excluded from the alignment of 16,551 positions in all subsets resulting in 15,592 common sites. NW, cod from the north west Atlantic (N = 32); NC, cod from the north east Atlantic of the coastal stationary ecotype (N = 25); NA, Arctic cod from the Barents Sea of the migratory ecotype (N = 97); π %, percent nucleotide diversity; S, number of segregating sites; η, total number of substitutions; k, average number of pairwise nucleotide differences; TD, Tajima’s D statistic. * P < 0.05; ** P < 0.01; *** P < 0.001
