Scientists think that Noctiluca flashes to startle or scare away its predators. The bioluminescence might also attract bigger predators to eat Noctiluca’s predators, just like a burglar alarm that alerts the police to come to someone’s house to catch a robber. It takes energy to make the chemicals that allow them to glow. It would be a waste of that energy to glow during the daytime But the question is whether we can commercially exploit this for human welfare??
