There is an urgent need to obtain information on the effects of underwater sound on marine fish due to imminent policy drivers, e.g., the European Union Marine Strategy Framework Directive, on one hand and the increasingly noisy activities in the marine environment on the other. Yet studying the influence of sound, particularly on the behavior of fish, is a challenging task. Studies in tanks can suffer problems with the reflection of sound, especially at the low frequencies that are most important for fish. Studies in the field are often limited because the observation of fish is very complicated.
