The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton. The most common type of marine bioluminescence is generated by phytoplankton known as dinoflagellates. A special channel in the dinoflagellate cell membrane that responds to electrical signals—offering a potential mechanism for how the algae create their unique illumination….
