Luminous bacteria isolated from the light organs of the Australian Pinecone fish Cleidopus gloriamaris have been studied. The isolates were from fish from four different geographical estuarine systems on the east coast of Australia. All isolates were found to be strains of Vibrio fischeri, a species not hitherto demonstrated conclusively as forming a symbiotic association. Some ecological considerations are discussed. 
Characterization ofAlteromonas hanedai (sp. nov.), a nonfermentative luminous species of marine origin
TLDR
Eleven marine luminous isolates, which could not be identified with previously studied species of luminous marine bacteria, were subjected to an extensive characterization and were assigned to the genus Alteromonas and given the species designationA hanedai.

TLDR
It is shown that fish possess bacterial populations on or in their skin, gills, digestive tract, and light-emitting organs, and taxa, including Pseudomonas, may contribute to spoilage by the production of histamines in fish tissue.
Phenotypic characterization ofPhotobacterium logei (sp. nov.), a species related toP. fischeri
TLDR
Immunological comparisons of the glutamine synthetases and Fe-superoxide dismutases of these strains as well as additional properties indicated that the ten luminous isolates and strain ATCC 15382 constituted a new species, which is designatedPhotobacterium logei sp.

TLDR
It is shown that fish possess bacterial populations on or in their skin, gills, digestive tract, and light-emitting organs, and the internal organs of healthy fish may contain bacteria, but there is debate on whether or not muscle is actually sterile.
13 Luminous Bacteria
TLDR
Current understanding of the biochemistry and genetics of bacterial light emission, the taxonomy and phylogenetics of light-emitting bacteria, the evolutionary origins and hypothesized physiological and ecological functions of bacterial luminescence are summarized.
Induction of luciferase synthesis in Beneckea harveyi by other marine bacteria
TLDR
It was shown that many marine bacteria produce a substance that mimics its action, but in different amounts, (20–130% of the activity produced by B. harveyi) depending on the species and strain, and none of the bacteria tested produced detectable quantities of inducer for P. fischeri.
How do marine bacteria produce light, why are they luminescent, and can we employ bacterial bioluminescence in aquatic biotechnology?
TLDR
The biochemical mechanism of bacterial luminescence and its genetic regulation are summarized and examples of how bacterial Luminescence can be employed in marine biotechnology, especially in the detection of toxic and mutagenic pollution in aquatic environments are provided.
Occurrence of plasmid DNA in the sepiolid squid symbiontVibrio fischeri
TLDR
It is concluded that the essential bacterial symbiotic determinants must be encoded on the chromosome and that the plasmids may carry genes that are important for the survival of these V. fischeri strains outside of the symbiotic association.
Reviews and syntheses: Bacterial bioluminescence – ecology and impact in the biological carbon pump
Abstract. Around 30 species of marine bacteria can emit light, a critical characteristic in the oceanic environment is mostly deprived of sunlight. In this article, we first review current knowledge
Control of Aliivibrio fischeri Luminescence and Decrease in Bioluminescence by Fungicides.
TLDR
The relationship between the luminescence of Aliivibrio fischeri and the composition of artificial seawater media and the toxicity of fungicides are studied and it is suggested that A. f Fischeri can be used as a biosensor to detect the presence of sodium ortho-phenylphenol.

The Identification, Taxonomy and Classification of Luminous Bacteria
TLDR
It is shown that the luminous bacteria can be divided into three major groups that span three genera, namely Vibrio, Photobacterium and a suggested new genus, Lucibacterium, to accommodate the ‘Photobacteria harveyi’ organisms.
Taxonomy of the marine, luminous bacteria
TLDR
Four species of luminous, marine bacteria isolated from sea water, surfaces and intestines of fish, as well as from the luminous organs of fish and squid were submitted to an extensive phenotypic characterization, supported by differences in the properties of the Luminous system.

TLDR
The phenotypic and genotypic characters of the type strain of Photobacterium leiognathi Boisvert et al. 1967 indicate that these organisms belong to one and the same species, and the correct name of this species, on the basis of priority, is P. leIognathi.

TLDR
The biolumineseent flash and the requirements for blue light emission are described, and the Hydrozoans and Ctenophores are studied.
