When and why does phosphorescence occur in Puget Sound?

Phosphorescence occurs in places all over the world and it happens when small micro organisms " glow" in the water. These plankton like creatures come from the bottom of the ocean where it's dark so they only come out at night. I have seen phosphorescence in the puget sound before and it occurs around the middle of august in the summer but in the sound it only happens in summer. Most of the times I have noticed it's a clear night with no rain.
