Research conducted by C. Costas, R.R. Fay, C. Platt, A.N. Popper, P.H. Rogers, and H.Y. Yan indicate that different species of fish are sensitive to different sounds and react differently to them. Fishes' sensitivity to sound and even the physiology of their hearing varies from species to species, but there seems to be general agreement that many species rely heavily upon sound to locate prey and avoid predators. I suspect the importance of the particular "vibes" a fly makes is equal to the fly's size, color, and shape - at least for some species in some conditions.
