Does Your Gefilte Fish Glow in the Dark?

Gefilte fish in London are all aglow, maybe because of the spotlight on them during the month of yamim tovim that just ended Sunday night. Or maybe it's due to luminescent bacteria that grow naturally in sea water. It's all reported in JC.com, an online extension of the Jewish Chronicle. The glowing fish was discovered by a student who came home late one night, and when she opened the refrigerator to retrieve a late night snack, the kitchen was illuminated with a bright green and yellow glow.
Too bad we don't celebrate Halloween. Can you imagine anything scarier than opening your front door and having a jar of glowing gefilte fish thrust in your face?
