What type of music do coral fish like? Well, a group of researchers from the University of Exeter found out recently. The researchers probably didn't play Stairway To Heaven to attract young juvenile fish to coral reefs; however, they did play the sounds of healthy reefs to attract young, vibrant fish to unhealthy reefs in hopes that it would activate something within the reef to start its way back to good health.
The noise worked because fish came to the reefs more than they did to reefs where no noise was played.
Listen to the episode to find out why, and find out what noises constitute a healthy reef.
Do you think the coral reefs will recover with the newly attracted young fish? Share your thoughts in the Speak Up For Blue Facebook Group: http://www.speakupforblue.com/group.
