Until recently, most Arctic waters were home to naturally occurring sounds that marine life could interpret and rely upon for activities like feeding, mating, communicating and navigating.

But as the climate crisis continues to warm temperatures and melt sea ice, the Arctic Ocean is increasingly affected by underwater noise from intensifying rates of shipping, oil and gas exploration, and infrastructure development.

Oscar Propulsion’s PressurePores™ technology reduces propeller cavitation, a major source of underwater noise pollution.
