Bioluminescence probably produced by Lingulodinium polyedrum, a species of the genus Dinoflagellate, in the waters around Toco, 2004. These unicellular organisms rise to the surface at night to breed (blooming). They glow when they are disturbed, in this case because of the wave action on the rocks.
