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.
