Issues for which this is an indicator and why

Coasts and Oceans — Direct pressure of human activities on coasts and oceans - Direct pressure of coastal activities (other than shipping and fishing) 

Many marine organisms rely on sound and visual signals for their survival. It is reasonable to assume that noise and visual signals from coastal activities may be disruptive to these signals and potentially uncomfortable, even lethal to some marine organisms.

No indicator has been developed for measuring or assessing the extent of this pressure or its actual impact on marine organisms. Some examples of impacts of sound or visual pollution from coastal activities on marine animals may be available.

Other indicators for this issue:

Coasts and Oceans — Direct pressure of human activities on coasts and oceans - Direct pressure of shipping 

Many marine organisms rely on sound and visual signals for their survival. It is reasonable to assume that noise and visual cues from shipping may be disruptive to these signals and potentially uncomfortable, even lethal to some marine organisms.

No indicator has been developed for measuring or assessing the extent of this pressure or its actual impact on marine organisms. Some examples of impacts of sound and visual pollution from shipping on marine animals may be available.

Other indicators for this issue:

Coasts and Oceans — Direct pressure of human activities on coasts and oceans - Direct pressures of harvesting non-living materials 

Many marine organisms rely on sound and visual signals for their survival. It is reasonable to assume that noise and visual cues from extraction and exploration activities may be disruptive to these signals and potentially uncomfortable, even lethal to some marine organisms.

No indicator has been developed for measuring or assessing the extent of this pressure or its actual impact on marine organisms. Some examples of impacts of sound and visual pollution from exploration and extraction activities on marine animals may be available.

Other indicators for this issue:

Coasts and Oceans — Direct pressure of human activities on coasts and oceans - Pressure of fishing 

Many marine organisms rely on sound and visual signals for their survival. It is reasonable to assume that noise and visual cues from fishing activities may be disruptive to these signals and potentially uncomfortable, even lethal to some marine organisms.

No indicator has been developed for measuring or assessing the extent of this pressure or its actual impact on marine organisms. Some examples of impacts of sound and visual pollution from exploration and extraction activities on marine animals may be available.

Other indicators for this issue:

Biodiversity — Pressures on biodiversity - Pressures on marine biodiversity: Pressures on coasts and oceans arising from multiple causes 

The full range of human activities involving the coasts and oceans involve forms of noise and visual pollution that could potentially place pressure on marine biodiversity.

No indicator has been developed for measuring or assessing the extent of this pressure or its actual impact on marine organisms. Some examples of impacts of sound pollution from exploration and extraction activities on marine animals may be available.

Other indicators for this issue:

Biodiversity — Pressures on biodiversity - Pressures on marine biodiversity: pressures of shipping 

Shipping is one source of visual and noise pollution with the potential to impact on biodiversity.

Other indicators for this issue:

Biodiversity — Pressures on biodiversity - Pressures on marine biodiversity: pressures of energy and mineral exploration and extraction 

Exploration and extraction activities are a source of visual and noise pollution which may impact on marine biodiversity.

Other indicators for this issue:

Biodiversity — Pressures on biodiversity - Pressures on marine biodiversity: pressures of coastal activities 

A range of coastal activities result in visual and noise pollution which have the potential to impact on coastal and marine biodiversity.
