i hate making alot of topics like this but.

Awhile ago i was at my shore house sitting on the dock at o about 11:00
now we sit on about 3 feet of water.
i picked up a pole and pocked the bottom of the water, trying to see how deep it was. as i pulled out the pole, a florecent light went off in the water, it stayed on for about a second and the faded. and went back on again same thing, i jumped back out of.... habit?
when i went back it was gone. I couldent think of any salt water fish that resides in the LBI bay like this before...

Maybe not a fish but a weird type of eel or some sort of sting-ray.there are lots of fish or ocean dwellers that light up, some bacteria or algae, jellys, lots of stuff. Oops forgot one thing maybe it's those aliens off that show Invasion

There are many types of glowing algae, some marine life can wander astray with ships or possibly sometimes get attached to ships and follow into dock.

Or im sure youve heard of the weird exotic fish that trawler fisherman find in giant catches of salmon or whatever. The less educated fishermen would find them and chuck them back in. If its alive it woud be stuck in the dock.

Trawlers, salmon?
They use gill-nets, and they don't go deep. I have many a friend on a fishing boat here in Prince Willian Sound


What you saw off the dock was probably a sea jelly or something of the sort. I used to catch them all the time when I lived on the Gulf Coast. Crammed a whole bunch if them in a mason jar, they're better than fireflies.

Sting rays live very shallow water. When my dad's friend lived on the bay they used to fluoder at night and they would have to watch out for them.

I was at camp a few years ago and we were sitting on the dock and it was midnight, pitch black (in the wilderness). The counsellers grabbed sticks, waved them about in the water, and the water glowed. They explained that it was many micro organisms that had glowing capabilites and were only visible during the night.

From then on, I've learned so much about these little organisms and its very interesting that they have those capabilities, imagine if humans were able to glow during night time.

was there any other light source near by? If so maybe it was a reflection off the water?
