Scientists built a “shark vision camera” that simulates what deep-sea sharks see, and it revealed that sharks may use biofluorescence to communicate with each other.


When the team looked at images and film of sharks that had been captured using their shark vision camera system, they could see biofluorescence “all over — it’s in their eyes, it’s on their skin”, said Professor Gruber. “This makes me think this is something important physiologically for this animal.”

Would be curious to know if light is shown on one area of the shark, would distant areas light up, indicating a photonic network of some sort.
