Lampfish

Each species of lampfish has a distinct pattern of lights on its body. When a lampfish goes looking for a mate, it seeks out other fish with the same pattern. How does a lampfish make light. It has special light-producing organs called photophores along its sides and belly. Most lampfish migrate to the surface nightly to feed. Lampfish larvae show up in Monterey Bay from December to March.

  1. You might want to update your sources a bit. Picture 4 for example is a video game model (Monster Hunter 3 Ultimate). And picture 5 is a lump fish, not a lamp fish.
