Thia picture represents the jellyfish getting clogged into the filters and due to the massive amounts of jelly fish this happens a lot
This is a massive swarm of jellyfish that demonstrates a population growing. These swarms are much larger and are found all over the world now, not just their normal natural habitat.
A new study helps explain a cyclic increase of jellyfish populations, which changed parts of the Bering Sea dramatically, one of the U.S.'s most productive fisherey into jellyfish infested.
This map is based off of reports of jellyfish populations. As you can see there are a lot of populations of jellyfish all over the world and it is only growing from here.
Many scientists believe that jellyfish, particularly jellyfish swarms or blooms, are on the increase throughout the entire world, they are turning up in regions where they never existed or lived before. This may be good for the jellyfish since their species is growing, but this isn’t good because the jellyfish are clogging power plants.
We have been told that jellyfish population is growing in numbers and will swarm the oceans. But this may not be true. The sustainability of this is bad because the jellyfish over populating isn’t a positive impact to the ocean.
The power plant in Japan, on the Baltic Sea coast, could not get water from the sea to cool its reactors. Where the water comes in, it was clogged with jellyfish. It is interesting to see how many jellyfish they need to clear out every day. A solution for this is maybe building a blockade so they don’t get caught in there.
There are more jellyfish now than there ever were before. There are other factors driving population blooms, global warming is a big factor. The jellyfish love the warmer climates while we shouldn’t. Over-fishing has also killed off the jellyfish’s natural predators so that’s why their population is growing as well.
Some jellyfish species are edible. There is a good texture that is desired, after it is processed with salt and alum, "it should be crispy, kind of like al dente pasta" says Brotz, in the article above.
Due to the massive amounts of jellyfish blooms, a solution to this problem is to make the jellyfish into tasty chips.
