Fish Sounds Indicate Behavior

Marine biologists are studying the sounds that fish make. They believe that sounds are key to understanding fish behavior. This audio story explores how listening to fish may also be a way to help protect fish. By studying the sounds that fish make when trying to attract mates and when breeding, we may be able to stay clear of them during those times to help them reproduce more productively.
