Summary

He et al. (2015) described piscivory patterns in the main basin of Lake Huron 1984-2010, during which there was also a pattern of stepwise declines in the abundance of dominant prey fish species. The approach of He et al. (2015) was to couple age-structured stock assessment and fish bioenergetics models to estimate prey fish consumption, and to compare these patterns with prey fish biomass from a bottom trawl survey. Riley and Dunlop (2015) were highly critical of the methods and conclusions reached by He et al. (2015). They claimed that we incorrectly interpreted the bottom trawl survey data, and did not account for uncertainty. We respond to these and other criticisms below, which we find do not undermine our findings.
