Current and Past Research

Current Work

All of our current research focuses on issues related to the effects of sound on fishes.  This includes recent work that examined how fish responded to seismic air guns, low and mid-frequency sonar, and incrase in background noise.  Current work focuses on the effects of pile driving on fish.  Follow this link to learn more about our work in this area.
