Abstract
    Although the North Sea is a relatively small basin, its hydrodynamical range varies from fully mixed to stratified, with tidal regimes up to 6 m. Tidally induced currents and wind stress generate a complex pattern of local currents. Marine invertebrates and fish, inhabiting this environment, are characterized by a high potential for dispersal. However, the realized dispersal depends on how they behaviourally deal with the current dynamics they experience. Here we report on how dispersal patterns of a mysid and two fishes, all common inhabitants of the North Sea, are reflected in their life-history and in their genetic variation.
