New paper: Effects of a seismic survey on cod

We published a new paper on the effects of a seismic survey on the behaviour of Atlantic cod. We tagged and tracked Atlantic cod in an offshore windfarm and had a seismic survey passing by in parallel tracks for a 3.5-day period. Seismic surveys are performed to map the seafloor and use loud impulsive sound to do so. During the survey, cod changed their activity patterns, during and after the survey, more cod than expected left the area. Studies like this help to yield insight into the effects of human activities on fish populations. The paper was published in Current Biology by Inge van der Knaap, Jan Reubens, Len Thomas, Michael A. Ainslie, Hendrik V. Winter, Jeroen Hubert, Bruce Martin, and Hans Slabbekoorn.
