Oceans are a sonic symphony. The ability for sound to travel through the vast expanse of the sea is essential to the survival and prosperity of marine life; but man-made ocean noise is threatening this fragile world. The film Sonic Sea is about protecting the essential life in our waters from the destructive effects of oceanic noise pollution.
