ABSTRACT: This Theme Section reviews the ecological role of large marine decapods, presents selected case studies, and features comparative analyses of the dynamics of fish and crustacean populations and their interactions across several subarctic ecosystems. Collectively, the studies described here highlight the role of climate and predation in regulating fish and crustacean populations in these systems. The Theme Section has resulted from the activities of ESSAS (Ecosystem Studies of Sub-Arctic Seas) Working Group 4 on ‘Climate Effects at Upper Trophic Levels’.

KEY WORDS: Subarctic · Crustacea · Gadoids · Climate · Predation · Trophic dynamics
