I can already tell you the catch (in Maine anyway) for this year is already on the rise and will easily beat last years. In my favorite bay the barring circumstance was a big trawler circling nets at the bays mouth catching the majority of the bait fish.
The water temps were screwy and a few other elements that just fed to the stripers being somewhere else. They were still there, but the conditions (I believe) didn't show a threatened population, just a little change or adaptation to conditions.

Its like saying there that tourist populations are threatened..... but not mentioning if it was snowing, raining, and hurricanes blowing during spring break in Florida. The tourists were still there, they just went to more hospitable places that season.
