Take a journey to the bottom of the ocean…where no sunlight reaches…where pressure would kill a human…where light has a whole new meaning…where fish throw a party…this is all the mystery of bioluminescence. Fish are pretty normal, but what about fish with powers? Well lucky for fish, because 80% of them have powers… these fish have bioluminescence.
This is a Comb Jelly.
Those are the comb rows!
These are Dionoflagellates, 1 on the left picture, and 3 on the right picture.
This is a picture showing a glow of orange dinoflagellates in the sea. Even though each one is microscopic, they bunch together to form a large group. The small white object in the lower left corner is a big boat, but it looks tiny compared to the huge dinoflaggelate group.
On the left William Beebe squeezes into the Bathysphere, and on the right is a portrait of William Beebe a little older.
That is the organ that sticks out!
This is a pony fish.
This is a Spiny Dogfish. Not much is known about this species.
This is a lantern fish. On the bottom a picture shows what they look like.
This is a hatchet fish, eating what looks like a shrimp.
This is a Flashlight Fish. They are called that for their tiny “flashlights” under their eyes.
This is the Scarlet Shrimp.

Blue is the most common color in Bioluminescence
They can live anywhere from the Tropics to the Arctic.
Bioluminescence is a wonder filled of science. So far it has few answers. There is more to Bioluminescence than what scientists currently know, and we hope for a day when more is known. But for now, these questions remain a secret in the deep sea. Maybe never to be told…
