Effects of Noise from Vibroseis Equipment on Arctic Fish

The study was designed to address 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 at an isolated and flooded gravel mine near the Sagavanirktok River.
