Study on the Effect of Noise on the Physiological Activity of the Round Goby from the Black Sea

The Romanian coastal area of the Black Sea presents all types of artificial noise sources (ranging from naval activities, to military applications, construction activities, drilling platforms etc.,) with strong effect on acoustic sensitivity of hydrobionts. This paper presents the influence of antropogenic sound on the physiological activity of the round goby (Apollonia (Neogobius) melanostomus, Pallas, 1814) which are kept in cages. The analysis of some biochemical indicators for the oxidative stress (superoxid dismutase, catalase, reduced glutathione and malonildialdehide) performed on liver tissue of the round goby from the Black Sea exposed to different qualities of antropogenic noise, indicated that in shallow waters parts of the Black Sea, where goby fishes (with different species, characteristic for each biotope) are the dominant fish species, noises/vibrations with high intensity are harmful for the ecosystem.
