lantern fishes

LANTERN FISHES are small, deep sea fish of the large family Myctophidae. The Myctophidae are represented by 246 species in 33 genera, having a circumglobal distribution. They are aptly named after their conspicuous use of bioluminescence, phosphorescent light organs along each body wall.

Lantern Fishes is a beautiful animation by Adam Gault and illustrated by Stefanie Augustine. The short film details the various lantern fish in the sea.

Takes some time to load but it is worth your while.....
