(CNN)A group of international scientists has called on Norway to halt plans for acoustic experiments on minke whales.A research team is intending to capture a dozen juvenile minke whales off the Norwegian coast and use sensors placed on their skin to measure their brain responses in reaction to sound. The research team conducting the experiment says it is designed to understand which kinds of human-made ocean noise affect the whales, as human-made sound can have an impact on an animal's hearing and behavior and cause it stress.

In the past, Ashley’s parents- Tea and Ted- have been outspoken about not supporting their daughter’s relationship with her troubled baby daddy.
However, the 24-year-old insisted that Bar has changed during the latest episode of Teen Mom 2.
During a confessional, Ashley said: “I feel confident that my parents feel confident he’s changed because my mom is a straight shooter and she would definitely be telling me like, ‘Girl, don’t accept that ring from him.”
Bar later sat down with Ashley’s step-father, who asked if the couple was “ready” to tie the knot.
He responded: “I do 100 percent believe I’m ready. We had our fair share of issues.”11Ashley's parent have been vocal about disliking Bar in the pastCredit: MTV 11Ted invited Bar out to lunch to discuss the status of his relationship with AshleyCredit: MTV
Ted admitted he used to think of Bar as a “human f**k-up,” adding: “That put a bad taste in everybody’s mouth.”
Ashley step-father added: “Me and Tea was talking about how you got yourself together and stuff. You fell a** backwards into a good woman.
“The bottom line is simply this. Take care of her, man. Take care of tiny. Take care of yourself.
“Cause if you can’t get yourself together, you no good to nobody else.”
He concluded: “We’re gonna pass her onto you, man. With our blessing.”11Ted concluded that Bar had their 'blessing' to marry AshleyCredit: Twitter/Teen Mom 11Fans slammed Ashley's parents for supporting the relationshipCredit: Social Media - Refer to Source
While Bar said he “appreciated” receiving a blessing from both Ted and Teas, Teen Mom 2 fans took to Twitter to argue that the 24-year-old did not deserve it.
Ashley and Bar are the parents to three-year-old daughter Holly.
The on-and-off-again couple have been engaged since November of last year.
Back in May, Bar was arrested and taken into custody.
According to a police report shared by the Instagram account TeenMom.Tea, the MTV star was arrested for the "willful discharge of firearm in negligent manner."11The pair announced their engagement back in NovemberCredit: Social Media - Refer to Source 11They share three-year-old daughter HollyCredit: Social Media - Refer to Source

The Sun confirmed his arrest, which was when Bar had already been released from jail.

Earlier this month, the MTV star opened up about her past struggles with Bar on Coffee Convos with Kailyn Lowry and Lindsie Chrisley.
Ashley told Kailyn, 29: "You know what, people don't understand Bar and I but Bar and I have been homeless together – we've been through so much together that we are just trying to make it f**king work.
"We both grew up without biological fathers, so that's why – even though we go through so much crazy s**t – we push to give our daughter something better."11Ashley previously opened up about her relationship with Bar on Kailyn's podcastCredit: Instagram Teen Mom Ashley Jones and Bar make plans to celebrate their engagement
