Long-term shift in coastal fish communities before and after the collapse of Atlantic cod

The decline and collapse of Atlantic cod around Newfoundland is well known – but how has this decline of a formerly dominant species affected the structure and functioning of inshore fish communities? In this new paper, we analyze data from detailed beach seine surveys in coastal ecosystems along the eastern coast of Newfoundland from the 1960s and 1990s to compare the abundance, diversity and species composition of inshore fish communities before and after the cod collapse.
