Firefly squid

ReleaseMarch 27, 2018

In spring, Toyama Bay is famous for firefly squid. They usually dwell in the depths of the sea, but come to shallower water near the coast to spawn in spring. Small firefly squid, so-called for their luminescent body surface, emit blue and white light and the sight created by a large shoal resembles The Milky Way. You can see firefly squid-fishing from sightseeing boats, which set off from Namerikawa Fishing Harbor. Mysterious lights fantastically shimmer in the sea before dawn.
