Fish and ships: Vessel traffic reduces communication ranges for Atlantic cod, haddock

https://www.nasa.gov/news/releases/latest/index.html

NOAA scientists studying sounds made by Atlantic cod and haddock at spawning sites in the Gulf of Maine have found that vessel traffic noise is reducing the distance over which these animals can communicate with each other. As a result, daily behavior, feeding, mating, and socializing during critical biological periods for these commercially and ecologically important fish may be altered, according to a study published in Scientific Reports.
