Data from: Novel molecular approach demonstrates turbid river plumes reduce predation mortality on larval fish

Lucia B. Carreon-Martinez, Kyle W. Wellband, Timothy B. Johnson, Stuart A. Ludsin & Daniel D. Heath
Turbidity associated with river plumes is known to affect the search ability of visual predators and thus can drive “top-down” impacts on prey populations in complex ecosystems; however, traditional quantification of predator-prey relationships (i.e., stomach content analysis) often fail with larval fish due to rapid digestion rates. Herein, we use novel molecular genetic methods to quantify larval Yellow Perch (YP) in predator stomachs in western Lake Erie to test the hypothesis that turbidity drives variation...
