Fish Diversion by Underwater Sound at Discrete Frequencies

Abstract

Ontario Hydro has been experiencing some difficulties at Thermal Generating Stations due to fish entering the cooling water intakes and passing through the screens in sufficient numbers to clog cooling tubes. Since these fish tend to be of the same species and size, e.g. alewife schools, it appears possible that sound at a discrete frequency, possibly resonant, might prove a deterrent to their entrance and reduce their effect on plant performance. Therefore funds were made available for the research projects which are described briefly below.
