Harsh statement! I’ve been scoping mission statements and guides to authors in journals to find suitable outlets for papers of the type that we’ve only sent to MEC or MER in recent years.  I noticed that Limborg was recently an author on a mini review in Marine Genomics.

I’ve whined about the misuse of microsatellites as a primary method of genetic stock identification, especially in salmonids, for over 13 years.  Finally only a few labs persist in this folly.   But microsatellite data may still have some use in the tool box, like a specialty screw driver or hammer.  Interesting that these editors are completely fed up!
