Many underwater plants and animals fluoresce. Some common species to see fluoresce on your dives are: Bristleworms, Corals, Shrimps, Lizardfish, Blennies, Scorpionfish, Eels, Mollusks, Algae and seaweeds. Divers and scientists continue to find new species that fluoresce underwater all the time.
What gear do you need?
To view underwater fluorescence you will need an underwater fluorescence light as well as a barrier filter over your scuba mask. To photograph underwater fluorescence you will need this same barrier filter on your camera lens as well as excitation filters on your underwater strobes.
How can you start?
