Trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) were irradiated at doses of 0.250, 0.500, 1, 3, 5, 7 and 9 kGy in gamma cell. DNAs were extracted from the irradiated samples before and after storage. 1ERP primers were designed, and RAPD-PCR (Randomly Polymorphic DNA-Polymerase Chain Reaction) was applied to make randomly amplifications on the DNA of the irradiated samples. Agarose gel profiles of irradiated fish were obtained to determine change of band profiles. In addition, DNA fragmentation occurring in each dose was determined by comet assay for the verification of methodology developed in this study. The molecular methodology was developed to estimate ionizing radiation (IR) level in irradiated fish. This methodology allows the analysis of the trout irradiated up to the dose limit of around 0.5 kGy and stored for a period of three months.
