Fish have been recorded singing a dawn chorus – just like birds
“One of the most persistent myths in biology is that fish are silent. Your goldfish might be the quietest pet you’ll ever have, but out in the open ocean, there’s a legit cacophony of hoots, moans, barks, and chirps that our human ears aren’t capable of perceiving.”
How Fish Communicate, Even Using Noise
“Fish have long been known to communicate by several silent mechanisms, but more recently researchers have found evidence that some species also use sound. It is well known that fish communicate by gesture and motion, as in the highly regimented synchronized swimming of schools of fish.”
Fish Talk to One Another
“The undersea world isn’t as quiet as we thought, according to a New Zealand researcher who found fish can “talk” to each other. Fish communicate with noises including grunts, chirps and pops, University of Auckland marine scientist Shahriman Ghazali has discovered according to newspaper reports Wednesday.”
