I'm not sure where to post this querie, but this seemed like the best

Can anyone tell me about the hearing range, specifically frequency, of
seals in general, and Australian fur seals in specific is ? Even an
upper limit would be helpful.

I'm also after the frequency spectrum of their vocal eminations, but
that is less important, and I'm less ambitious about finding it.

We are building some sonic equipment, and we would like to work out of
band, so the seals can't hear it.

Any help, or pointers to where to find it would be greatly

Many thanks for any help,

James Boswell.
