The general features of copepod bioluminescence are reviewed, with reference to the distribution, development, spectral emission, fluorescence, intensity and kinetics. The hydrodynamic problems of glandular expulsion of luminescence at low Reynolds numbers are noted and the observed behaviours and possible functions are discussed.
