There are already billions of them and their numbers are growing by the day. They wash up on coastlines the world over, posing a threat to local fishing and tourism industries and even endangering human lives.
These primitive and fearsome creatures are… jellyfish.
Warmer oceans, overfishing and marine pollution have encouraged jellyfish surpluses. These gelatinous, brainless creatures have a voracious appetite, devouring fish eggs and plankton. Their growing numbers pose a serious threat to the marine ecosystem.
From Japan to Australia, with stops in China, the United States and Europe, our film explains why and how the seas are being taken over by jellyfish, outlining the consequences of this upsurge and how it can be stopped… or turned to profit.
