The Southern Ocean is rapidly changing, with future environmental changes likely to have wide-reaching consequences for the structure and function of marine ecosystems (Constable et al. 2014). In addition, the coming decades are likely to see expansion of krill fisheries, and potentially the development of other new fisheries (Kock et al. 2007). Along with well-designed observation programs, ecosystem models are the central means by which we can gain insight into what these changes will mean for the structure and function of Southern Ocean ecosystems, providing the necessary information to inform management decisions into the future.
