harveyi and the consequences of infection of this pathogen on the shrimp culture industry in the Philippines have resulted in the development of different techniques to control luminous bacteria in shrimp ponds.
Monitoring of the plankton profile later identified the green algae Chlorella to be largely responsible for inhibiting the proliferation of luminous bacteria (Corre et al., 2000).

Additional CheckLight products, which are all based on unique luminous bacteria
technologies, will also be featured.
In this case, the light organ is filled with luminous bacteria
that emit light and provide the squid protection against predators.
More than 30 years ago, investigators first noted quorum sensing in two luminous bacteria
, Vibrio fischeri and Vibrio harveyi.
Bacterial luciferase assay: Assays for luminous bacteria in the arm tip light organs, the ejecta from the organs, and the surrounding water followed the reduced flavin assay described in Hastings et al.
The assay for bacterial luciferase in the tip lights was negative, as were the culturing efforts to demonstrate the presence of luminous bacteria in the arm tips and their exudate.
Smaller fish are attracted to anglerfish "lures" that glow with light produced by luminous bacteria
. Female anglers such as this one may be as big as a football; males are about the size of a human fingertip.
He has been interested in the biology of marine bacteria from the time of his undergraduate days at Oregon State University, and his interests were captured by luminous bacteria
and symbiosis during graduate studies at the University of California, Los Angeles.
When the reaction runs, the insect cadaver, filled with the luminous bacteria
, casts an eerie, funereal glow.
