Costa Crociere is providing acoustic deterrent devices to Italian fishing trawlers in the Mediterranean. The so-called 'pingers' will be attached to fishing nets to warn off dolphins and porpoises by emiting a safe, ultrasonic tone.

Such alarms have been shown to reduce the accidental netting of cetaceans.

Costa's donation supports the work of CNR-Ismar, Italy's National Research Council – Institute of Marine Science.
