Biosciences - reef fish acoustics

Research Area: Bioacoustics

Research that has revealed the role of natural sound cues in the orientation and settlement of coral reef fish has helped in the development of a new device to help attract post-larval fish to marine areas for restocking. Six prototypes of the device, which uses sound to attract fish, have been developed and tested in three countries by Ecocean, a global leader in ecosystem restoration who are developing technologies for the capture and culture of post-larval fish.
