dc.description.abstract The northern Benguela, under the influence of the opposing forces of the poleward Angola Current and the eastern boundary Benguela upwelling regime is a highly variable environment. The impact of climate change, especially in warming water temperatures and the shifting position of the Angola Benguela Frontal Zone (ABFZ), may be compounding this variability. Biological responses such as shifts in temperate species away from the warming mid latitudes, towards the cooler poles are becoming evident. This study aimed to quantify the effects of these changes (in terms of temperature, dissolved oxygen and salinity) on the spatial distribution of an important inshore commercial, artisanal and recreational fishery species in the northern Benguela, Argyrosomus coronus (west coast dusky kob). en_ZA
