Many observers have noted that the sea is full of loud sounds, both ongoing and episodic. Among the many sources of natural ambient noise are wave action, physical processes such as undersea earthquakes, and biological activities of shrimps, fish, dolphins and whales. Despite interest by acoustics experts, sound production by cephalopods has been reported only twice, both involving squid. The ‘faint poppings’ produced were thought to result from fluttering of the thin external lips of the squid… 

Thresher Sharks Use Tail-Slaps as a Hunting Strategy

Thresher sharks were able to consume more than one sardine at a time, suggesting that tail-slapping is an effective foraging strategy for hunting schooling prey.

Guidelines for the Care and Welfare of Cephalopods in Research –A consensus based on an initiative by CephRes, FELASA and the Boyd Group

This paper is the result of an international initiative and is a first attempt to develop guidelines for the care and welfare of cephalopods following the inclusion of this Class of ∼700 known living invertebrate species in Directive 2010/63/EU.

Cephalopods in neuroscience: regulations, research and the 3Rs

The approaches being taken by the cephalopod research community to produce “guidelines” are described and the potential contribution of neuroscience research to cepHalopod welfare is described.



Frequency Characteristics of Sea Noise and Fish's Sound

The frequency analysises of the sea noise of fishes are very lmportant to discriminate the species of fish or to forecast the catch fish in set fishing . We yellowtail by hydrophone devices devices .

Extreme impact and cavitation forces of a biological hammer: strike forces of the peacock mantis shrimp Odontodactylus scyllarus

The surprising finding that each strike generates two brief, high-amplitude force peaks, typically 390–480 μs apart, suggests that mantis shrimp use a potent combination of cavitation forces and extraordinarily high impact forces to fracture shells.


The decrease in hydrostatic pressure generated by octopus suckers adhering to wettable and non-wettable surfaces was measured using a flush-mounted miniature pressure transducer. The cavitation

How snapping shrimp snap: through cavitating bubbles.

Hydphone measurements in conjunction with time-controlled high-speed imaging of the claw closure demonstrate that the sound is emitted at the cavitation bubble collapse and not on claw closure, and a model for the bubble dynamics based on a Rayleigh-Plesset-type equation quantitatively accounts for the time dependence of the bubble radius and for the emitted sound.
