Over the last two decades, convincing evidence has been collected that global and regional climate variability is a strong driving force of changes in marine ecosystems (and the fish and shell fish populations embedded in them). Climate drivers influence near-shore, shelf and oceanic regions. However, the same climate signal may be correlated with different responses of marine populations among these regions, due to the different mechanisms by which climate variability impacts these communities and the role of human activities in modifying these mechanisms, particularly in near-shore areas. Whereas the effect of climate variability has been intensely studied in single marine systems or on single species/species groups across different systems, comparisons of climatic influences on coastal and oceanic systems are generally lacking. As marine ecosystems are not amenable to experimental investigations with respect to climate effects, comparative analyses are the best way to enhance our knowledge on the response of ecosystems and their populations. Ecosystem regime shifts and teleconnection patterns in the reaction of distant marine ecosystems towards climate impacts are important phenomena which help us to better understand responses to climate variability. The goal of this session is to (1) discuss the interactions, ramifications, and potential connections between climate variability and marine ecosystems, and (2) demonstrate the impact of climate variability with a view to future climate change.
