We show that the detection of neutrinos from a typical [Formula presented] ray burst requires a kilometer-scale detector. We argue that large bursts should be visible with the neutrino telescopes under construction. We emphasize the three techniques by which neutrino telescopes can perform this search: by triggering on (i) bursts of muons from muon neutrinos, (ii) muons from air cascades initiated by high energy [Formula presented] rays and (iii) showers made by relatively low energy (≃ 100 MeV) electron neutrinos. The timing of neutrino-photon coincidences may yield a measurement of the neutrino mass to order [Formula presented]-[Formula presented] eV.
