Title: Sound Production and Associated Behavior in Triggerfishes 
Author: Salmon, Michael; Winn, Howard E.; Sorgente, Nino
Date: 1968-01
Publisher: University of Hawai'i Press
Citation: Salmon M, Winn HE, Sorgente N. 1968. Sound production and associated behavior in triggerfishes. Pac Sci 22(1): 11-20.
Abstract: Two Atlantic and five Pacific species of
triggerfish produce sounds by movements of
the pectoral fins against the side of the body.
The behavior associated with sound production
was observed in the field and in populations
established in the laboratory. The sounds
produced by all species when held by the hand
underwater were analyzed and the pectoral fin-air
bladder mechanism used to produce the
sounds was studied principally by a series of
ablation experiments.
