The song of the humpback whale Megaptera novaeangliae in the West Indies
Songs of the humpback whale Megaptera novaeangliae were recorded and analyzed from Grand Turks in the Bahamas to Venezuela and it is suggested that songs from other populations are quite different.

Estimates of Prey Consumption and Trophic Impacts of Cetaceans in the USA Northeast Continental Shelf Ecosystem
Seasonal estimates of the consumption of finfish, squid and zooplankton by cetaceans were calculated for four regions of the Northeast Shelf system defined as Gulf of Maine, Georges Bank, Southern New England and Mid-Atlantic Bight using standard mammalian metabolic models scaled as appropriate for assimilation, activity and migratory fasting.
Electrophysiological observations on hearing and sound production in the fish, Porichthys notatus.
The low threshold of the ear at 150 cps corresponds to a fundamental frequency commonly found in the sounds produced by the fish, which indicates that the fish could use these sounds for communication between individuals.
ESTIMATION OF PREY DENSITIES REQUIRED BY WESTERN NORTH ATLANTIC RIGHT WHALES
This work has attempted to estimate the concentration of zooplankton required by right whales to obtain a net energetic benefit over the long term, using estimated values for body weight, metabolic rate, assimilation efficiency, time spent feeding, mouth size and swimming speed.

The darters comprise an important group of the temperate freshwater fish fauna of the Atlantic drainage of North America. These fishes make up the subfamily Etheostomatinae in the Percidae and over…

Evidence shows that, despite annual change in song organization, significant differences in humpback song occur between isolated ocean basins, while only subtle differences exist within an oceanic population (Hawaii and Pacific Mexico).

Population Estimate of the Humpback Whale (Megaptera novaeangliae) in the West Indies by Visual and Acoustic Techniques
Visual track census and a new method, acoustic counting, were used to estimate the humpback whale population in the West Indies, finding the average or best estimate was 1018 whales with a range of 785–1157.
