Title Noise impact on European sea bass behavior : Temporal structure matters
Author(s) Neo, Yik Yaw; Seitz, Johanna; Kastelein, Ronald A.; Winter, Hendrik V.; Cate, Carel ten; Slabbekoorn, Hans
Source In: Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology Springer New York LLC (Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology ) - p. 763 - 766.
Department(s) IMARES Vis
Publication type Peer reviewed book chapter
Publication year 2016
Keyword(s) Amplitude fluctuation - Anthropogenic sounds - Dicentrarchus labrax - Intermittency - Stress response

Anthropogenic sounds come in different forms, varying not only in amplitude and frequency spectrum but also in temporal structure. Although fish are sensitive to the temporal characteristics of sound, little is known about how their behavior is affected by anthropogenic sounds of different temporal patterns. We investigated this question using groups of Dicentrarchus labrax (European sea bass) in an outdoor basin. Our data revealed that the temporal pattern of sound exposure is important in noise impact assessments.
