Ocean Conservation Research is focused on understanding the scope of, and exploring solutions to the growing problem of human generated noise pollution and its impact on marine animals.

We engage in marine biological and technological research based on conservation priorities. We use the products of this research to inform the policies and practice of the public, industry, and lawmakers so that we may all become better stewards of the sea.

Learn more about  how fish hear, the variety of  ocean life which employ sound, and the various ways that sustainable human interaction with the ocean relies on us learning and working  to navigate and respect this vast sensory environment.
