Impact of climate and fisheries on sub-Arctic stocks

Editors: J. M. Durant, N. C. Stenseth

Marine Ecology Progress Series Vol. 480, pages 199–287

ABSTRACT: Understanding the drivers (internal and external) that determine the productivity of marine ecosystems is challenging. For example, the correct estimate of recruitment is essential to estimate fish stock abundance. In this Theme Section, 5 papers explore the effect of fishing and climate on population structure across sub-Arctic ecosystems. The studies focus on how temperature- and fishing-induced changes in spatial and demographic population structure affect recruitment and population growth rate. The results suggest common patterns, but also highlight differences in the relative importance of fishing and climate among the populations and ecosystems examined.

KEY WORDS:  Climate · Non-stationarity · Spatial distribution · Recruitment · Population growth · Sub-Arctic
