Abstract:

Reprints of five published studies are included on the acoustic biology of selected species of sharks found in the waters off Florida and the Bahamas. Interest was directed primarily at determining 1 what types of underwater sounds instrumental, as well as biological were effective attractants for sharks, 2 those parameters of a sound which were apparently used by these animals for purposes of rapid, oriented movement to a sound source, and 3 what might be the biological significance attached to excellent hearing ability and rapid movement to a given sound-producer.
