Long-term changes over the latter half of the 20th century have been evaluated for a number of planktonic and benthic time series for the central-west North Sea region, alongside long-term changes in large-scale climatic and regional meteorological variables. Parallel long-term increases were observed in most of the climatic and meteorological series, and in one of the benthic series. In addition to these long-term changes, quasi-coincident changes were also observed during the early 1980s and mid to late 1980s across the abiotic and biotic series. We discuss the similarities and dissimilarities observed across these long-term time series, and the importance of considering the influence of both direct and indirect effects on long-term changes in the central-west North Sea ecosystem.
