The Ostracods, or seed shrimp, are a group of small crustaceans that measure only about 1 mm in diameter. They can generate bioluminescent light, which they use to protect themselves from predators. Bonaire is home to a special species of Ostracods, the “blue tears” or “blue sand” Ostracods, who generate blue light as part of their mating display. Every month after the full moon, the ocean lights up in a brilliant bioluminescent display that can only be compared to a beautiful starry night. Add in the weightlessness of diving through the water and it is as if you are floating through space itself.
