The biological light, or bioluminescence, in the waves is the product of marine microbes called phytoplankton—and now scientists think they know how some of these life-forms create their brilliant blue glow. The most common type of marine bioluminescence is generated by phytoplankton known as dinoflagellates. A recent study has for the first time identified a special channel in the dinoflagellate cell membrane that responds to electrical signals—offering a potential mechanism for how the algae create their unique illumination.

Better theory-

And then on the first day, phytoplankton said: Let there be light. And there was light.
