As discussions and debates are crucial to science, we appreciate the comments by Heikinheimo et al. (in press) on our article on competition for Baltic Sea fish resources between fishery and wildlife. We cannot see that the comments by Heikinheimo et al. changes the general conclusion derived in our original article-that there are cases of competition between wildlife and fisheries in the Baltic Sea, although not for all species and not to the same extent everywhere. Our responses are structured in the same order as the comments by Heikinheimo et al.
