Anseriformes as the large waterfowl living in the northern hemisphere, with the size and shape is between that of duck and swan. Its aquatic habit and characteristics were worse than that of duck and swan. With the continuous development of economy, the temptation of high profits and the weak awareness of environmental protection, the cases of killing the wild geese illegally have been reported in our country. However, in the process of law enforcement, the executor often lack of clear morphological evidence supporting, which makes the identification difficult. In this paper, we successfully identify several wild goose meat products by means of molecular genetics, and discuss the operation techniques and marker selection of molecular genetics in species identification based on related researches. At the same time, it also provides a streamlined and practical technical route for the determination of species in such cases.
