At some of the ocean’s lowest depths, where light is scarce to nonexistent, many fish, crustaceans and microorganisms produce light. Scientists believe this may be used to attract mating partners or warn potential predators, though specific reasons are not entirely known.

Bioluminescence appears in an estimated 80% of deep sea life , according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).
