Puget Sound Jellyfish show up in areas of poor water quality

Questions remain about how humans might be encouraging jellyfish and whether short- and long-term climate variations may shift things in favor or against jellyfish versus forage fish.

 

"The important thing," said Rice, "is that people are trying to understand this stuff. It is exciting to compare notes and talk about how things are being pushed around at the bottom of the food chain. Our observations so far are consistent with going down the jelly road."
