Currently the west coast oceans near San Diego and Newport Beach in california, are experiencing a Redtide pheonominum, last night for the first time I witnessed the algea exibiting Bioluminescent behavior, if you are near there I recomend obtaining a sample as soon as possible, an interesting side note, we noticed that the algea seemed to illuminate more when kenetic energy was used, hitting or walking in the sand, also we poured a glass of water off of the newport peir and a brilliant blue hue errupted off of the waters surface, I too now knowing about this am on a personal mission to find out as much as possible good luck to you in the future
