During the last warming period (1998-2011) distinct trends in abundance of fish species from different zoogeographic groups were observed. Abundance of cold-water fish species (arctic, mainly arctic and arcto-boreal groups) decreased from 2000-2001 to 2010. But since 2011, slight increases in abundance of these groups have been observed.

During the last warming period (1998-2011) distinct trends in abundance of fish species from different zoogeographic groups were observed. Abundance of cold-water fish species (arctic, mainly arctic and arcto-boreal groups) decreased from 2000-2001 to 2010. But since 2011, slight increases in abundance of these groups have been observed.

At the same time abundance of warm-water (boreal, mainly boreal, southern boreal and widely distributed groups) fish species have trended to increase.

The highest abundance was observed in 2001-2004 and 2008-2010. Since 2008 a clear tendency to decrease has been observed for these groups. However, as mentioned above, the abundance of blue whiting increased again in 2012.
