Submitted by: LaChica 8 years ago in Science

Scientists in Taipei have developed fish that glow in the dark. I wonder how they taste.

I love it! Chinese dude: "It started out as scientific experiment, but then we saw great potential in making devorative fish!" Which of course is much more important then science :)

ummm yeah lame... what a crap thing to develop, do they not realise that ninety percent of deep-sea marine life is estimated to produce bioluminescence in one form or another. And everyone knows that bioluminescence totally kicks fluorescence`s ass.

I love how professional geneticists can just have their years of hard work rubbished on the internet. A buddy of mine did this in Uni with worms for his degree. It really does work.

"um, these fish are NOT glow in the dark, theyre only florecent, theres a difference. theyre just very shiny and colorful, you wont see them if you turn out the lights."

I assume, though, that they would glow under UV (black light).

Meh, I`ve been fishing around Three Mile Island and Chernobyl for years, and they ALL glow. Seriously though, that`d make night fishing soooo easy lol. "There`s one"
