Summary of "Ship noise inhibits colour change, camouflage, and anti-predator behaviour in shore crabs."

Ship noise is a prominent source of underwater sound pollution. Carter et al. demonstrate that ship noise has multiple negative effects on animal traits that do not primarily rely on acoustics. In shore crabs, color change to improve camouflage and predator escape responses are adversely affected by ship noise but not by equally loud ambient noise.
