Abstract : The available data on the sounds produced by various marine organisms are compiled, together with samples of tape recordings referenced by entry number to the descriptions and illustrations. The report is intended primarily for assistance in recognizing and identifying sounds of biological origin. Each entry includes a description of the acoustic characteristics of the sound, the identification of the source species, as far as possible, a simple line drawing of the animal, and one or more sound spectrograms taken from the recorded sample. Two classifications of the entries are given: one is based upon the acoustics characteristics of the sounds, and the other is based upon the zoological relationships of the animals. Reference is made to NAVTRADEVCEN 1212-1 and other publications for background material. (Author)
