The island Vaahdoo in the Maldives is one of those places where the sea shows the bioluminescence because of phytoplankton.
In the Maldives occurs the phenomenon of bioluminescence of phytoplankton. On the beach of Vaadhoo, the night sky seems to be reflected in the water. Instead, the stars do not reflect, they are in the water.
These tiny forms of marine plant life produce this incredible effect: it seems that the stars are falling into the sea.
Marine biologists in the Maldives are studying bioluminescence. Scholars explain that the dinoflagellates organisms, microscopic algae that contain chlorophyll are responsible for this phenomenon. The channel conformation in the cell membrane of these organisms would respond to electrical signals, this allows these tiny beings to produce light.
Not only the island Vaahdoo
The phenomenon is visible on the island Vaahdoo where tourists can watch this amazing show. It can be observed also on the coast of Leucadia, in California, and in the Everglades in Florida.
The sea waves, moving, produce lighting effects difficult to describe, it seems almost magical but has scientific basis as described by the marine biologist Woodland Hastings of Harvard University, he is sure that many species of phytoplankton produce bioluminescence and then you could also be observed in other parts of the world.
