Polarized Light Scattering Off A Fish (IMAGE) Florida Atlantic University Caption Researchers from FAU's Harbor Branch and collaborators collected more than 1,500 video-polarimetry measurements from live fish from distinct habitats under a variety of viewing conditions, and have revealed for the first time that fish have an "omnidirectional" solution they use to camouflage themselves, demonstrating a new form of camouflage in nature -- light polarization matching. The top panel in black/white shows the intensity and the two other panels resolve different aspects of polarized light scattered off the fish.
