everything in the oceans is vulnerable to noise,.... we have royally screwed up the oceans. horrendous tragedy, over exploited for 500+ years. its a miracle theres anything alive in the oceans at all.

Was it really that exploited 100 years ago? Genuinely asking as I thought the industrial revolution was when humanity started destroying the planet.

Whales were for lampoil. But other than that, not sure.

Whales were used for other things such as corsets (ribbing from baleen), tools (spoons for caviar), jewlery, soaps, food and perfumes among other things. Absolutely tragic.
