Noisy Humans Drowning Out Fish

Like a constant, maddening ringing in the ears, human-generated persistent sounds may stress and harm fish, according to a presentation scheduled for later this month at the annual meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in Seattle.

The poor fish! Noise pollution is often overlooked and yet as evidenced by this research, its effects are just as deleterious as pollution from chemicals, oil, etc. Noise pollution is also harmful to humans. I often think how wonderful it would be to be out on a beautiful day and hear nothing but birds, crickets, and the wind in the trees, instead of cars, lawnmowers, leafblowers, and people blabbing for all to hear on their cell phones.
