Summary

Invasive silver (Hypophthalmichthys molitrix) and bighead (H. nobilis) carp, collectively referred to as bigheaded carps, threaten aquatic ecosystems of the Upper Midwestern United States. Due to extensive ecological impacts associated with these species, prevention of their further range expansion is the aim for fisheries management. Recent behavioral studies indicate bigheaded carps are deterred by acoustic barriers and exhibit negative phonotaxis in response to anthropogenic sound sources (≥ 150 dB re 1 μPa SPLrms). However, the impact of long-term exposure to these sounds on the hearing capabilities of bigheaded carps has not been well documented. In this study, the auditory evoked potential (AEP) technique was used to determine [...]

Purpose

The use of acoustic deterrents shows promise as a management tool to mitigate the spread of invasive silver and bighead carps. The efficacy of an acoustic deterrent depends upon the ability of the targeted fish to hear the signal. Therefore, the amplitude for the playback of acoustic deterrent signals needs to be adequate to repel the fish but not high enough to damage the auditory end-organs thus resulting in a loss of hearing sensitivity. The data in this study were collected to determine the potential impacts of sound on the hearing abilities of invasive silver and bighead carps.
