Underwater eavesdropping?

Global news has featured a recent report that BC non-profit society Pacific Wild  has placed six hydrophones underwater off BC’s central coast to research how marine life use the waterways, by measuring underwater noise patterns.  It is hoped that the data produced by the recordings will help in future marine planning initiatives in the very waterways that are expected to see a rise in commercial shipping traffic in the coming decades.
