Short summary
We constructed the habitat models explaining the spatial patterns of the large and small Arctic copepods and the Pacific copepods of the northern Bering Sea and Chukchi Sea. The adequate models show the importance of water masses and sea ice retreat timing. This finding also indicates that earlier sea ice retreat has positive effects on the abundance of all copepod groups in the northern Bering and Chukchi seas, suggesting a change from a pelagic–benthic-type ecosystem to a pelagic–pelagic type.
