Tracking whales with existing fiber-optic cables may reduce ship strikes

• arclein

Global warming has caused many large whales to move from warmer waters, increasing the risk of being struck by ships. Norwegian researchers have converted existing fiber-optic cables into hydrophones, enabling them to track Arctic fin whales in real time. The easy-to-adopt technique may reduce the incidence of ship strikes and help protect whales worldwide.
