Abstract

As the marine ecosystem is highly interconnected through predator–prey relations, the direct impacts of ocean climate change have ‘knock-on’ effects through the food chain. For example, recent warmer conditions and associated shifts in plankton abundance andgeographical distribution have led to reduced availability of prey fish for some seabirds, which has been strongly linked to recent poor breeding success and reduced survival rates.
