Courtship sounds of the Pacific damselfish, Abudefduf sordidus (Pomacentridae)


Courtship sounds of the Pacific damselfish, Abudefduf sordidus (Pomacentridae)



The Biological Bulletin 2): 2-4



Part of a special section on short reports from the 1999 General Scientific Meetings of the Marine Biological Laboratory. The courtship-associated sounds (CAS) produced by the Pacific damselfish (Abudefduf sordidus) were examined. CAS patterns produced by 4 male A. sordidus recorded at Johnston Atoll were irregular and highly variable. The sounds seemed to result from a combination of hydrodynamic noise produced by vigorous swimming movements with fins extended and biological sounds made by the movement of muscles and bones, possibly amplified by the swimbladder. Furthermore, the sounds seemed rudimentary compared with the acoustic displays of Dascyllus and Stegastes species.
