Anthropogenic underwater acoustic noise is known to affect marine life from mammals to sea birds. Due to the intense use of acoustics for communication and navigation by mammals (especially whales), there is a significant body of research devoted to the impact of underwater noise in this type of animals. On the contrary, studies on the impact on fish are much less common. This work presents a preliminary study on the impact of acoustic emissions in fish. Results obtained in a tank are presented both for biological parameters and speed estimation through camera. Differences in stress levels have been found as well as in speed that may suggest physical deficiencies. However, future work is needed to corroborate these results.
