Sea Anemone

Bioluminescence magic or science?

It is phenomenon by which some organisms produce and emit light thanks to a chemical reaction that converts energy into light. The enzyme responsible for this is luciferase.

But what is it for? Marine animals use it both defend themselves and communicate, and to attract prey, or partners. 

Why is the beach shining?

This phenomenon occurs due to the presence of an algae called Noctiluca scintillans, also known as " sea spark", which is responsible for causing these flashes of light.
