Jellyfish futures ring global ocean industry alarm bells

Those pretty translucent blobs that the word “jellyfish” conveys? Who’d have thought? Few of us know the half of it. Closer to home, jellyfish can massively sting salmon to death. They increase the ocean acidification that has ravaged our Northwest shellfish, eating away their shells. Pink jellies are abundant in late summer in Deep Cove’s Indian Arm.
