Jellyfish Reproduction

"porpita porpita - the blue button jelly - is a neustonic species mostly found in the tropics; that is, it floats near the surface of the water. The circular disc is made of chitin and filled with gas, allowing these jellies to float. The tentacles (zooids) radiating from the disc do all the feeding."

Jellyfish have a nifty trick: Out of nowhere one day, they’ll invade a patch of sea, hundreds of millions of them, clogging nets, beaches, even power-plant cooling systems that happen to be nearby. And then, just like that, they’ll disappear again for another few decades. These cryptic cycles raise a lot of questions. After all, a surge in jellyfish should mean a surge in jellyfish reproduction. So why, as is often the case, do only a few jellyfish turn up the year following a huge bloom?…
