    Oxygen uptake rates of P. amboinensis juveniles exposed to playback of ambient coral reef sound, or playback of a boat with a 30hp two stroke engine driving at 10-200 m.

    Abstract [Related Publication]: Boat noise is increasingly common worldwide and has been found to have detrimental effects on fishes. It is therefore important to develop tools to measure the circumstances under which fishes are affected by boat noise. Measuring whole organism oxygen uptake rates as a proxy for metabolic rates can be a useful way of quantifying stress and its associated energetic costs. I designed and used a noiseless aquatic intermittent-flow respirometry system to monitor changes in oxygen uptake rates of juvenile damselfish exposed to either the noise from an outboard-power boat or ambient conditions in absence of a boat. No significant change in oxygen uptake rates were detected in newly settled Pomacentrus amboinensis in response to the playback of boat noise. This suggests there is either no stress response occurring or no immediate energetic cost to the fish in response to the boat noise playback. Future studies should examine long-term costs of stress related to boat noise.
