They found that levels of the whales&rsquo; stress levels fell when ship traffic was reduced as a security measure and ocean noise to fall by half.</p> <p> <br /> &quot;What this study has shown is that they are having a measurable physiological stress response to the noise in their environment,&rdquo; Rolland <a href="">told LiveScience.</a></p> <p> <br /> The researchers believe that these high stress levels may cause behavioral changes in the whales, as well as impacting their immune and reproductive systems, <a href="">LiveScience says.</a></p> <p> <a href=""><br /> <em>The Telegraph </em>explains</a> that ships&rsquo; propellers emit sound in the same frequency range that some whales use for communicating.
