Info

Fisherman haul up glowing nets of florescent sea critters. Those are the neon blue flashes from thousands of Firefly Squid (Watasenia scintillans) ( ほたるいか , hotaru-ika ) squirmed around in the nets. It is Hotaru Ika season for the fisherman: every year in spring, these bioluminescent cephalopods come to Toyama Bay to lay there eggs in the open water. Namerikawa, Japan | Einheimische Fischer fangen den Leuchtkalmar (Watasenia scintillans). Sie holen den Fang in den Netzen an die Oberfläche, dabei fangen die Leuchtkalmar (Watasenia scintillans) an zu biolumineszieren. Das ganze Netz ist voller bläulich schimmernder Tiere.
