Abstract: The definitions, methods, and results are entirely combinatorial. The symplectic jeu de taquin algorithm developed here is an extension of Schützenberger's original jeu de taquin and acts on a skew form of De Concini's symplectic standard tableaux. This algorithm is used to construct a weight preserving bijection between the two most widely known sets of symplectic tableaux. Anticipated applications to Knuth relations and to decomposing symplectic tensor products are indicated.
