Illuminating the impact of diel vertical migration on visual gene expression in deep-sea shrimp

Danielle DeLeo & Heather Bracken-Grissom
Diel vertical migration (DVM) of marine animals represents one of the largest migrations on our planet. Migrating fauna are subjected to a variety of light fields and environmental conditions that can have notable impacts on sensory mechanisms, including an organism’s visual capabilities. Among deep-sea migrators are oplophorid shrimp, that vertically migrate hundreds of meters to feed in shallow waters at night. These species also have bioluminescent light organs that emit light during migrations to aid...
