The Blob, Elevated Eastern Pacific Ocean Temperatures, Affected Commercial Fishery Catch

​For environmentally sensitive marine species, changing ocean temperatures can affect distribution and abundance. The Blob, an abnormally long and intense marine heatwave, affected eastern Pacific oceanic temperatures up to 140 m deep from 2013-2016. Other climatic patterns (PDO, ENSO) that occurred during the Blob may have exaggerated the elevation of ocean temperatures. To determine the impact of the Blob, we examined a 10-yearperiod (2009-2019) of ocean temperature and commercial fishery data. We hypothesized that species with warm water preferences would experience an increase in commercial catch, while catch would decrease in species that prefer cooler waters. We compared average ocean temperatures between depths of 5-300 m in southern California to commercial fishery catch data (a proxy for population abundance). There was a positive correlation between ocean temperature and catch data for Northern anchovy (Engraulis mordax), copper rockfish (Sebastes caurinus), lingcod (Ophiodon elongatus), and yellowtail amberjack (Seriola lalandi). A negative correlation between ocean temperature and catch data was observed for Pacific sardine (Sardinops sagax) and market squid (Doryteuthis opalescens). Chub mackerel (Scomber japonicus) catch was not related to ocean temperature. Increased ocean temperatures associated with the Blob likely impacted marine life by shifting the distribution of species and influencing fisheries. As ocean warming events become increasingly common, impacts seen in marine species can be indicative of future ecological and anthropogenic consequences as species distribution and abundance change.

Density and Abundance patterns of native and non-native oysters Ostrea lurida and Crassostrea gigas over time in San Diego Bay, California

​Oysters, foundational species in bays and estuaries, provide complex habitat for marine species. Ostrea lurida, the only oyster native to the U.S. west coast, experienced significant population declines during the 1900s and has not recovered since, while Crassostrea gigas, a non-native oyster, was introduced for aquaculture and has since recruited to estuaries outside of aquaculture. C. gigas populations may negatively impact native O. lurida. Over the past decade, C. gigas densities and abundances increased dramatically in Newport Bay, CA, suggesting that this global invader’s populations may be increasing throughout southern California. We hypothesized that C. gigas density and abundance have increased and O. lurida density and abundance have declined from 2013-2020 in San Diego Bay, CA. We calculated density and abundance at Chula Vista Wildlife Reserve (CV), Grand Caribe (GC), and Glorietta Bay (GB) at tidal elevations ranging from -0.3 to +1.81 m MLLW. One-way ANOVAs with post-hoc comparisons were used to analyze change in O. lurida and C. gigas density across years at tidal elevations > and ≤ +0.38 m MLLW. C. gigas density and abundance increased at higher tidal elevations at 2 of 3 sites (CV, GB). O. lurida density and abundance decreased at lower tidal elevations at 2 of 3 sites (CV, GC). However, O. lurida population declines did not coincide with C. gigas population increases in space and time. Further studies may elucidate whether population dynamics of O. lurida and C. gigas are linked over time within San Diego Bay.
