Aside from the fact that many here seem to horribly underestimate the scale of commercial fishing, there are a few additional factors that would
explain this event.
First of all, these fishermen are basically sitting on top of a mirror (the ocean surface) When you direct incredibly powerful lights against the
ocean, it will be a lot more visible than some diffused lighting from streetlights and interior lighting spilling out into the streets, which gets
absorbed and reflected far more than a light in the middle of the ocean. These aren't just cabin lights from the ships, these are very, very powerful
Second, you have tons and tons of extremely powerful lights covering an area greater than any city on the continents. Each and every one of these
lights is extremely powerful, compared to a city where you have mostly (relatively) dim street lights, building interior/exterior lighting, etc which
covers a smaller area. It makes perfect sense these ships would show up so bright.
As to why they would all congregate together so close, well they aren't bumper to bumper, think about gas and dust clouds in the universe. We see
large clouds from our perspective, if you actually got up close you wouldn't see anything, it's just tiny grains of dust very far apart, that from
far away appear to be a large thick cloud. There are many ships down there, and they are relatively close together, but they wouldn't need to be as
close as some assume.
And the idea put forth by Phage that the fisherman are simply following concentrations of whatever they are looking for explains perfectly why they
would all be together in the first place. But nah, lets ignore logic for a bit, under sea bases and alien communication arrays are much more fun.
And to the person who claimed that there would be facebook and twitter posts about this..... uh what? These guys are fishermen, not 15 year old girls.
Go around twitter and facebook and find how many commercial fisherman tweet and update facebook all day while on ship. What do you want them to say?
"LOLZ chek it guise! i'm out fishin and so are tons of other boats, but they are too far away to really see well so I won't bother with a picture"
