"This paper is the first to look at the wide distribution of biofluorescence across fishes, and it opens up a number of new research areas." Unlike the full-color environment that humans and other terrestrial animals inhabit, fishes live in a world that is predominantly blue because, with depth, water quickly absorbs the majority of the visible light spectrum.
