This report describes carefully controlled laboratory based experiments conducted to consider the potential impact of pile driving noise on Atlantic salmon behaviour and physiology. It is divided into two sections - Part 1: Audiometry, using Auditory Evoked Potentials (AEP) to Determine Hearing Thresholds of a Number of Cohorts of Salmon and Part 2: The Impact of Pile-Driving Playback on the Behaviour and Physiology of Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar).
