That's Too Many: Millions Of Jellyfish Gather To Feed On Salmon Eggs

May 17, 2018

This is a video from the coast of Alaska of a ton of moon jellyfish allegedly gathering to feed on salmon eggs. But I thought salmon laid their eggs in freshwater streams, and the resulting fry grow into smolt over a couple years before ever heading to the ocean to mature? Are these eggs that got washed out to sea? Anybody? Whatever the case, that is too many jellyfish. Although the sting of a moon jellyfish is apparently pretty tame and can only "lead to prickly sensations to mild burning" in humans. Just don't let that stop you from insisting you need to pee on it if a friend ever gets stung. You can call me and I'll back you up if it ever happens. I also heard it helps if you spit in the their eye and call them a little punk.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to jess, who agrees jellyfish are way more jelly than fish. They are like zero parts fish minus living in the water.

    Maybe John Olivier felt bad about shooting all those salmon through his salmon canon and devised a caviar conveyer-belt to restore balance in the force.

    My god... it's full of st....jelly fish!

  • "little punk"... come on GW, we know what you wanted to say. ;)

    I guess that's not too scary. I watched a documentary that showed you can bounce harmlessly off the tops of jellyfish.

    Apparently also helps if you are voiced by a famous lesbian.

    I didn't know Tom Kenny was a famous lesbian.

  • sizzlepants

    I thought you had to blast them with the ice beam before you could bounce of them...

  • Geekologie

    does this guy even metroid?

  • TheQiwiMan
  • Always helps.

  • The_Wretched

    I wanted to try the bouncing thing but I'm male so no luck getting voiced.

    Nothing is impossible to those who will never surrender their dreams.

    I know that story. This father had to rescue his kidnapped deformed son from kidnappers after his wife and all his other children were brutally slaughtered by a murderous psychopath. He paired up with this crazy amnesiac, met vegans who turned out to be reformed cannibals...what a crazy story that was!!
