That is interesting. I'd heard of this sort of sonic research being done on bird habitats that are in decline, but I didn't realize that reefs were loud. Well, mine is, but I just need to clean the pumps, I think. :)

yeah, I remember reading an article a while back saying that larval fish seem to locate the reefs using sound during their pelagic phase. at least some species do…can't provide a reference. I feel like a terrible scientist :)
