Characteristics and Issues of Jellyfish, (Craspedacusta sowerbyi)First Draft

This discussion topic submitted by Amy Smith ( on 4/8/98.

(First Draft)
My topic is Jellyfish, (Craspedacusta sowerbyi). I will explore the following questions:
1. What do they look like?
2. Where do they live?
3. What do they eat?
4. When would I see them?
5. The History of their name.
6. How are they born?
7. How do you cope with a sting?
8. What are their predators?
9. Are we going to see jellyfish?
I think that it is important to explore these questions because we may run into jellyfish while we
are in the Bahamas. We will need to know how to cope with stings and the history of the jellyfish.
