Ocean soundscape researchers hit SCOPE TV

Oceans aren’t as silent as you think – it’s a noisy place filled with snapping shrimp and crashing waves, as our researchers explain on the latest episode of SCOPE. Marine animals use sound to navigate through the ocean. Larvae for example use the sounds of the sea to find their way back home. Professor Ivan Nagelkerken […]

Media release: Barramundi populations at risk from acid oceans

Wild barramundi populations are likely to be at risk under ocean acidification, a new University of Adelaide study has found. Published in the journal Oecologia, the study is the first to show that even freshwater fish which only spend a small portion of their lifecycle in the ocean are likely to be seriously affected under […]

Media release: Nutrient pollution is changing sounds in the sea

Nutrient pollution emptying into seas from cities, towns and agricultural land is changing the sounds made by marine life – and potentially upsetting navigational cues for fish and other sea creatures, a new University of Adelaide study has found. Published online in the journal Landscape Ecology, the research found that marine ecosystems degraded by ‘eutrophication’, […]

Ocean warming and acidification are changing shark behaviour

As the Earth’s oceans warms, sea-dwelling creatures experience a raft of changes. While much attention has been directed towards small-bodied fishes, we know relatively little about the effects of ocean warming and acidification on large predators like sharks. A new publication by the Environment Institute’s Jennifer Pistevos, Associate Professor Ivan Nagelkerken, Dr Tullio Rossi and Professor […]

Media Release: Baby fish lose poisonous protectors in acidified oceans

A common close partnership which sees baby fish sheltering from predators among the poisonous tentacles of jellyfish will be harmed under predicted ocean acidification, a new University of Adelaide study has found. Published today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the researchers say that modification of this baby fish-jellyfish symbiotic relationship is likely […]

15 effects of climate change on marine fishes

As climate change continues to ravage our natural systems, ocean warming and acidification pose a greater and greater and threat to marine organisms. Associate Professor Ivan Nagelkerken discusses the impacts of warming and acidification to that very over-looked group of marine creatures – fish. While much attention has been paid attention to coral reefs, oysters and […]

Podcast: The silence of the shrimp

PhD candidate Tullio Rossi was interviewed by Radio Adelaide‘s Ewart Shaw. He discusses his research about the silencing of shrimps. Snapping Shrimps are the loudest invertebrate in the ocean, and their peculiar sound, itself a complex scientific phenomenon, is a vital indicator of ocean health and welfare. Tullio Rossi, is also the creator of an award-winning […]

COSMOS Feature: Snapping shrimps silenced

Research showing how shrimps are being silenced, was recently published in Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The research, led by Associate Professor Ivan Nagelkerken, PhD student Tullio Rossi and Professor Sean Connell has been featured in COSMOS Magazine. The researchers recorded the crackle of Alpheus shrimp near naturally acidic underwater vents and found fewer and quieter snaps. Not only does […]

Media Release: Silent oceans: acidification stops shrimp chorus

Snapping shrimps, the loudest invertebrate in the ocean, may be silenced under increasing ocean acidification, a University of Adelaide study has found. Published today in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the researchers report that under forecast levels of CO2 predicted to be found in oceans by the end of the century, the […]
