Understanding the key drivers of population connectivity in the marine environment is essential for the effective management of natural resources, and for estimating the potential impacts of climate change on the resilience and genetic structure of populations. I will describe the use of a ‘seascape genetics’ approach, combining oceanographic, Lagrangian, and genetics modelling with observations of population genetic structure, to understand the role of oceanographic connectivity on the population genetics of two Antarctic fishes, Champsocephalus gunnari and Notothenia rossii. I will then illustrate the application of the numerical models to explore the impacts of a warming climate on the connectivity and population genetics of these two fish species, and discuss the potential implications for their ability to adapt to environmental change.
