Jellyfish Identification chart (common or problem jellyfish of the British Isles) for fish culturists, harvesters and marine life enthusiasts

A photographic identification leaflet for the aquaculture industry in Shetland was developed. This guide may be used by the industry when monitoring the water for any harmful species of gelatinous plankton, which have the potential to be problematic to the fish resulting in losses. A quick identification is needed of any gelatinous species, which may harm the farmed fish so effective management methods can be put in place to reduce losses.
