- We just published a new paper on on the soundscape of local, Nantucket Sound off of Cape Cod..
We assess the dominant sound on Horseshoe Shoals, cusk eels. Cusk eels are a type of fish that make a very loud sound during its reproduction time (the summer). This family of fish is found all over the globe. The sounds are loud, near continuous, making a loud chorus that peaks at dawn and dusk and is acutally lounder at night, then they are during the day.
The paper was published in Aquatic Biology: cusk eel sounds on Horseshoe Shoal
