ABSTRACT The bioluminescent potential of individual ostracods collected on a cruise to the northern Sargasso Sea in July 1986 was measured using a shipboard laboratory photometer. Photometrics revealed that most, but not all, of the species of Conchoecia tested produced bioluminescent light (1-12 x 1010 photons per individual) during mechanical stimulation. The most abundant species, Conchoecia spinirostris, captured in the net collections during the cruise was not bioluminescent. In those bioluminescent species in which both females and males were available for testing, both sexes were bioluminescent. The bioluminescent potential of these planktonic ostracods is similar in magnitude to that reported for other mesoplankton, such as copepods, larvaceans, and large dinoflagellates.
