Monitoring the status of the ocean and jellyfish populations through mobile user-submitted reports. is a global citizen-science project that engages the public in monitoring the status of the ocean, and jellyfish populations in particular. The web database and mobile apps allow entry of sightings and exploration of user-submitted reports. The goals are to develop a worldwide time-series of jellyfish populations as a resource for ocean-goers (swimmers, surfers, and fisherman) and for management agencies.
