We have found a long-term southward migration of the sub-Antarctic Front is coupled with a long-term depletion of δ13C signatures in the inshore benthos, likely reflecting a long-term decline in phytoplankton productivity at the sub-Antarctic Prince Edward Islands. Furthermore, a decline in the abundances of inshore-feeding top predators at these islands indicates changes in prey availability, which may have resulted indirectly through the effects of regional climate change on the marine ecosystem at these islands.
