Bering Sea Jellyfish Blooms: Jellyfish Population Fluctuations and Ecosystem Impacts

Wednesday, May 1, 2019

Academic Science Building - SCI 222

The eastern Bering Sea is a productive and economically valuable ecosystem, supporting rich populations of zooplankton, fish, marine birds and mammals. This ecosystem also supports large populations of jellyfish, which have fluctuated substantially over the past 4 decades.  Jellyfish, both predators and competitors of fish, respond to physical and biological conditions with other planktonic organisms, and thus, provide important clues to understanding changes in the Bering Sea ecosystem.
