Welcome to Jellyfish Watch

Beware - jellyfish are predators! Sure they usually eat zooplankton and other critters too small for most of us to see, but there are concerns that warming water is spurring jellyfish population growth, which might be having impacts on important fish species both by directly feeding on the larvae or the food that the small fish depend upon. To help make better sense of where we're seeing which jellyfish and when, Brown University has created a new smartphone based application (app) to allow our volunteers to report where they are seeing jellyfish - and even where they aren't (sorry - salt waters only for now).

Check out the RI Jelly Watch Website - http://quidditch.gis.brown.edu/jellyfish_RI/.
