Jellyfish watch

The CIESM (International Commission for the Scientific Exploration of the Mediterranean Sea) has recently lunched a jellyfish monitoring programme, called JellyWatch, that looks for reports of jellyfish swarms in the Mediterranean Sea.

The main goal of this project is to gather baseline data on the frequency and extent of jellyfish outbreaks in the region. Individuals can contribute to this database by sending digital photos of jellyfish aggregations, and reporting location and other relevant information.

A nice identification poster can be downloaded here.
