Arctic coastal land is split within five states’ jurisdictions. 5 million km2 (about 70 %) of the Arctic land mass (AMAP 1998). The other regions, from east to west, are the Euro-Barents region (Norway), Greenland, Northern Canada, and the Bering region, including Alaska and the Pacific coast of Russia. Biodiversity in the Arctic experiences threats from both inside and outside the region. Bird species, fish stocks, and marine mammals in the Arctic environment are not only linked with external systems by their migration patterns, but Arctic habitats are also affected by global ocean currents and pollution transport into the region (CAFF 2010; see also below Sect.

28 A. Riedel Ice-dependent species—both land and sea species—are expected to follow the ice edge as it melts and moves further north; however, the abundance of these species is expected to decline due to the rapid shifts in marine conditions (AMAP 2011a). Walruses are also directly threatened by sea ice loss, as the ice provides additional breeding grounds which are reduced and crowded spaces on the coast provide neither a place to raise young, nor sufficient food sources (Reimnitz et al. 1994).

2 The Arctic Marine Environment 25 Ice algae develop during spring and throughout summer as light becomes available in the polar region. Polar cod, which provide a key link between zooplankton and marine mammals, live in both sea ice and pelagic environments. Nesting seabirds, such as ivory gulls, feed on polar cod and other small fish and zooplankton at the ice edge. 2 In the water column and on the seabed, fish, crustaceans and—again—marine mammals also find their habitats, including Atlantic cod, haddock, Alaska pollock, Pacific cod, and the Arctic spider crab (ACIA 2005).
