This document reports on the results of an expedition to study bioluminescence in the western Alboran Sea of the Mediterranean in April of 1991. Two oceanographic research vessels and a research submersible were involved in making extensive measurements of bioluminescence and optical properties, as wall as related biological and physical parameters. The primary research tool used was the HIDEX, a high resolution, state-of-the-art bathyphotometer. The results reported here cover only bioluminescence and related biological measurements made from the USNS Bartlett. Recommendations are given for survey requirements needed to extend measurements seasonally and geographically in this region of the Mediterranean. Bioluminescence, Optical Properties
