Welcome to the FishSounds website! We offer a comprehensive, global inventory of fish sound production research. Information can be searched by fish taxa, by sound characteristics, or by reference. Learn more about us and our data in the About Us section!

We are still growing! If you would like to suggest an edit or contribute a reference or associated fish sound recording, please contact us.
