Mysticetes are a suborder of marine mammals that includes some of the largest species, such as fin, blue and humpback whales. These animals, commonly referred to as baleen whales, are found throughout the world’s oceans, including areas of oil and gas exploration. The oil and gas industry is concerned that the most sensitive hearing range of some whales may overlap with dominant airgun frequencies, making them potentially more sensitive to and more responsive than other marine mammals to low-frequency sound sources like air guns or commercial shipping.
