Jellyfish in living color

I am still new to this blog posting thing, and with my body still thinking I’m on night watch, I thought I’d take a few minutes to put up an extremely short video narrated by our contributor Jellyfisher. One part of this project is to measure jelly fish gut contents as a measure of how much impact they are having on the zooplankton populations. We’ll be doing the same thing with forage fish and larval fish that feed on zooplankton, but I don’t have video of fish swimming in a sample jar, so here you go. There are a few other silly videos from the night watch on our youtube channel here, but I do stress silly. Alas, things we find funny on the night watch do not always translate to funny for the daylight world. However, keep an eye on that site, as we will try to put some more content up in the coming weeks and months, talking about our work, and perhaps animations to illustrate our objectives, etc.
