Abstract
    This paper describes the design and development of a solid state sensor for the measurement, in situ, of stimulable bioluminescence of marine organisms. It can be towed in the Undulating Oceanographic Recorder or used in vertical profiling mode from a stationary research vessel. The sensor can detect signals from 109 quanta s-1, from a single dinoflagellate flash, up to 1013 quanta s-1, at cell densities of 106 to 108 m-3. Measurements of bioluminescence and associated environmental conditions are presented from a variety of deployments of the sensor in the Undulating Oceanographic Recorder.
