Atlantic OCS Proposed Geological and Geophysical Activities, Mid-Atlantic and South Atlantic Planning Areas, Draft Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement.
This report considers the effects of human-generated (anthropogenic) sound on fishes, with particular reference to seismic airguns and sonars. However, since there are few data on the effects of any anthropogenic sources on fishes, much of the discussion will be based upon a wider range of sound sources, with a goal of some extrapolation to help inform potential effects from airguns and sonars. Emphasis will be placed upon peer-reviewed studies in the scientific literature. However, gray literature reports of high scientific quality will be cited as appropriate. It should be noted that this review will not be comprehensive. Readers interested in more extensive analysis of the effects of anthropogenic sounds on animals are referred to Popper (2003), Hastings (2008), Popper and Hastings (2009a), and Slabbekoorn et al. (2010) for general reviews and to Popper and Hastings (2009b) and the papers in Popper and Hawkins (2011) for a more detailed overview.
