Are loud, horny fish destroying your sleep?

An unusual humming noise was disturbing the sleep of residents in a British town last winter, leading to a number of them leaving just so they could get a decent night of sleep.

Nobody knew where the disturbing sounds were coming from. Some suggested industrial machinery, others suggested cargo ships, others suspected their neighbors were running washing machines all night. Some residents even went to the doctor suspecting they'd developed tinnitus.

After an investigation, scientists discovered the sound was coming from male midshipman fish. These fish emit long hums (that can last up to an hour) as a way of communicating with female fish.

Apparently, the low frequency and long wavelength of these calls allows the sound to travel very easily.

So, if strange noises are keeping you awake at night perhaps it's down to the nocturnal activities of a school of frisky fish!
