Jellyfish live in all the oceans of the world.


Jellyfish medusae live in seawater from shore areas exposed at low tide to the very deep ocean. The polyps are attached to hard surfaces, such as rocks, shells, and plants, at various depths.

Jellyfish eat plankton, which is microscopic plants and animals drifting in water; fish eggs and larvae (LAR-vee), or young animals that must change form before becoming adults; other jellies; and small crustaceans (krus-TAY-shuns), which are water-dwelling animals that have jointed legs and a hard shell but no backbone.


Jellyfish are not threatened or endangered.

Hello,

Im looking at Cassiopea jellyfish eating habits and trying to destinguish the difference form other Scyphozoans. My thoughts so far is the simbiance with plankton any other thoughts? Also do you know of any evidence of Mycorrhizal Simbisis supporting the relationship just curious on your thoughts I will return something intresting to you if I uncover anything...Thank you
