19.05.2017 – Bioluminescence

Sunshine and dolphins, what else? Today our guests on the Ribeira Brava enjoyed Common dolphins and Stenella had in addition some Bottlenose dolphins. During the morning trip a Fire salp passed Ribeira Brava. A bacterium which lives symbiotically in the cells of this salp is responsible for bioluminescence.
