Abstract

Concern continues about the potential effects the sounds produced during pile-driving activities have on fish (e.g., Popper and Hastings 2009). We investigated the effects of high-intensity sound on juvenile Chinook salmon (Oncorhynchus tshawytscha). State-of-the-art equipment was developed to expose fish to pile-driving signals in the laboratory.
