Abstract : The intensity of the noise generated by snapping shrimp between 630 and 12, 500 Hz was measured from Auckland Wharf to the end of the dredged channel leading into Gladstone, Queensland, and on a route out across to the edge of the reef. Within the channel the noise was recorded every nautical mile; out across the reef the stations were five miles apart. Intense snapping shrimp noise was found at all sites. -BKA
