Farting Fish

Weird buzzing sounds have been coming from the Pacific Ocean.  Some scientists sailed out to the sea to investigate it.  The scientists made an experiment, they dropped a microphone down as far as 3300 metres and listened to the sound and it worked.  They believe that it is actually fish that live in the depths of the water, that release methane from their bladders.  The fish do this to either keep afloat or to communicate to other fish with their gasses.
