Passive acoustic technologies allow the detection of underwater sounds. In studies of the many vocal fishes and other marine life, they have been used to track distribution, spawning behavior, habitat preferences, and other important data. They also enable the examination of environmental and anthropogenic noise. This booklet, which resulted from a workshop held in 2002, describes the techniques and applications of passive acoustics in fisheries research; lists relevant North American noise- making species; and discusses the future of the field.
