We investigate the Markov property and the continuity with respect to the initial conditions (strong Feller property) for the solutions to the Navier–Stokes equations forced by an additive noise. First, we prove, by means of an abstract selection principle, that there are Markov solutions to the Navier–Stokes equations. Due to the lack of continuity of solutions in the space of finite energy, the Markov property holds almost everywhere in time. Then, depending on the regularity of the noise, we prove that any Markov solution has the strong Feller property for regular initial conditions. We give also a few consequences of these facts, together with a new sufficient condition for well-posedness.
