Braid colour is really about what you like to be looking at rather than visibility for the fish. As the guys said, bright colours (and also white) are easier for you to see so you can see where your lure or bait is and how it's behaving. For that reason its very popular for lure casting. It's also good as flyline backing so you can see where the tuna or trevally you're hooked up to is heading
If you ever have a look at the 'low vis' colours like smoke or green, they're still quite visible under water compared to mono or fluorocarbon. That's why most fishos use leaders or when getting really sneaky, maybe even switch to straight fluorocarbon and dispense with the braid altogether.
