JERVIS BAY is again putting on a brilliant show

The bioluminescence has again been prominent at a number of locations on the NSW South Coast, proving popular again with residents and local photographers.

The blue tide, as it is known, is the production and emission of light by a living organism.

It is a form of chemiluminescence, which occurs widely in marine vertebrates and invertebrates, as well as in some fungi, microorganisms including some bioluminescent bacteria, and terrestrial arthropods such as fireflies.
