The scientiﬁc prospects of detecting neutrinos with an energy close or even higher than the GKZ cut-oﬀ energy has been discussed extensively in literature. It is clear that due to their expected low ﬂux,the detection of these ultra-high energy neutrinos (Eν > 1018 eV) requires a telescope larger than 100km3. Acoustic detection may provide a way to observe these ultra-high energy cosmic neutrinos, as sound that they induce in the deep sea when neutrinos lose their energy travels undisturbed for many kilometers. To realize a large scale acoustic neutrino telescope, dedicated technology must be developed that allows for a deep sea sensor network. Fiber optic hydrophone technology provides a promising means to establish a large scale sensor network with the proper sensitivity to detect the small signals from the neutrino interactions.
