I'm looking for something that might summarize the current state of knowledge and/or general evaluation on the usefulness and/or effectiveness of acoustic pingers for marine mammal deterrence.  Are these devices useful or not; if useful, for what species under what circumstances? What are the limitations of marine mammal deterrence using acoustic pingers? Any suggestions or citations?
