One idea would be to focus high intensity sonar beams on suspected biological targets. This could cause significant injury. The most significant injury is likely to occur at interfaces between materials of different density or elastic properties - such as occurs where muscle meets bone or where gas is present inside the body, such as at lungs or swim bladders. Sound is about the only thing that goes well through water, allowing stand-off strikes against incoming fish-men with a rapidly re-directable beam.
