The ocean is not a silent world, and that also goes for the sanctuary. There are a multitude of sounds happening at all times – some natural, and some created by humans. You can find a collection of sounds from local waters and other locations around the nation and world, at the NOAA Fisheries Sounds in the Ocean web pages.
As the SanctSound project continues, the research team will be developing a database of sounds from all of the sanctuaries. We will post a selection of Stellwagen Bank-specific sounds to this site.
