Abstract

•A suite of ocean circulation and Lagrangian models were compared to determine inter-model uncertainty and variation.•Absolute results (positions, temperatures, etc.) varied between models, but trends were comparable.•More plaice than sole larvae reached a marine protected area although released in the same area but at different times.•About 10% of all herring larvae released in the southern North Sea were located in a wind-park area when becoming juvenile.
