The study was designed to address the potential physical effects to fish from the energy imparted to a water body by vibroseis equipment and also to semi-quantitatively assess the magnitude of the behavioral disturbance caused to fish by operating the equipment in their proximity. The study was conducted northeast of Deadhorse, Alaska at an isolated and flooded gravel mine site and in the Sagavanirktok River.
