Cancun Fish party at night!

My latest publication, released today online in the Bulletin of Marine Science (available here as an open access article), describes Passive Acoustic Monitoring of fish off the coast of Cancun, and finds that their sounds are more frequent, persistent, and diverse at night versus during the day. This is crucial information for environmental management, which currently relies on daytime visual survey data. Nocturnal fish sounds are important!
