Red Tide Leads to Glowing Bioluminescent on San Diego Beaches (See Pictures)

Bioluminescent bloom lights up waves Bioluminescence from red tide: Algae bloom literally lighting up San Diego waves at night

Photographers in the San Diego area have also been flocking to the beaches there to catch the bioluminescent display on camera.

An algae bloom filled with bioluminescent phytoplankton has been lighting up the ocean the past two nights on an 18-mile stretch from La Jolla to Encinitas.

Bioluminescent phytoplankton create their own light during a red tide in the rolling surf along the coast of Leucadia, California, Sept 29, 2011.

Tuesday was the second night of the bioluminescence.

Bay shared on Facebook that the last red tide to show in San Diego came in 2013 and he made it a point to make sure he didn't miss this one.

Bioluminescent light shows are not uncommon globally, but the last red tide in San Diego was in 2013 - and it's no less attractive each time they grace the oceans.

Peninsula weather: Some rain possible Monday
The radar forecast at 7 p.m. shows the growing area of thunderstorms, although they still should be described as scattered. A weather system that could produce isolated severe storms will be moving through MI this afternoon and evening.


Bioluminescence occurs when an algae bloom is loaded with "massive numbers of (plankton known as) dinoflagellates, including Lingulodinium polyedra", Scripps Oceanography expert Michael Latz said in a tweet.

"It's this bright electrical blue color and it's lovely", Jami Leslie Feldman, owner of Underwater Paparazzi, told the news station. "Just having natural phenomena where the lights are glowing and the water is lit up - it's fantastic". The toxins may also make the surrounding air hard to breathe.

Several Scripps scientists are collecting samples of the current red tide for future research on "the genetic and metabolic characteristics of the organisms".

The current red tide is "quite patchy" and the bioluminescence can be seen only when the algae bloom gets close to shore, Latz said.

The red tides are unpredictable and not all produce a bioluminescence.
