Seismikkens ringvirkninger : The impact of seismic surveys
MetadataShow full item record
Sound is an important means of communication for many species of fish, in terms of feeding, survival and reproduction. The sound waves from seismic guns have low frequencies that overlap the range at which fish hear well. All evidence suggests that fish are not particularly keen on the sound energy produced by seismic surveys. Just like humans, fish move away from sources of unpleasant noise if possible.
