Other websites with marine sounds

There is still a major number of species that are not even confirmed as being vocal (Rice et al., 2020). Furthermore, does not exist a central database of sounds that could be used as reference for each species or group species. Efforts to make available several sounds have been done by the following websites:

Fish base

DOSITS

Sounds produced by mammals, fishes, invertebrates and man-made (several authors)

Macaulay library

The Macaulay Library is the world's largest archive of animal sounds

Macaulay library - Fishes

Link to Marie P. Fish recordings of fishes.

SART

Fish Sounds Collection of Joe Luczkovich

Rountree site

Studies on Soniferous Fishes (with recordings)

Laboratory of Functional and Evolutionary Morphology
