Atlantic and Pacific herring make farting sounds (22 kilohertz) at night to communicate, helping their mates form protective shoals and stay safe from predators. The researchers named this phenomenon Fast Repetitive Tick (FRT) and described the sound as “a high-pitched raspberry”.For discovering that fish communicate through farting, the researchers won an Ig Nobel Prize in 2003.
