Another strange “green river” has appeared in China

On the coast of the city of Dalian, in the province of Liaoning, China appears the phenomenon of “fluorescent sea”. This is the second time this phenomenon has appeared here.

The microorganisms glow, burrowing in the sand to create this strange phenomenon. There is an algae called Dinoflagellata which emits a firefly-like light when hit by waves.

Dinoflagellata algae are very sensitive to water.

This phenomenon also occurs in Australia, Puerto Rico, Maldives, the most famous of which is the island of Vieque in Puerto Rico.

In April 2014, this phenomenon first appeared on the Dalian Coast, China.
