Jellies in full bloom in Monterey
Description and Comments
Fuscescens is everywhere in front of the aquarium. Moon jellies sparsely mixed in with nettles today with even fewer Phacellophora but reports of massive moon blooms from weekend fishermen. Still lots of Bolinopsis and Pleuros at surface. Another Pandea pulled up in 99 ft depth plankton tow this time. Heard reports of more colorata but have not seen anymore yet myself. Water is dark brown with dense Copepoda.
