Throughout the past 10 years, there has been an increasing interest regarding the influence of man-made noise on life in the sea. Behavioral studies show that hearing in fish (and other animals) can be impaired, either temporarily or permanently, by exposure to intense sound (Smith et al. 2004). Also, physiological studies such as auditory brain stem response (ABR) measurements have shown that hearing thresholds shift when exposed to intense sounds (Kenyon et al. 1998). It is known that some fish use hearing for sound communication and auditory scene analyses (Popper et al. 2003), but little is known about how threshold shifts will affect their fitness through behavioral changes in, for example, predator/prey interactions.
