Jellyfish are one of the most unique and fascinating creatures in the ocean. With an impressive set of skills, these gelatinous creatures have adapted to almost every under water habitat, living as long as 30 years and growing up to 200 times their initial size. They also play a critical role in the ocean’s ecology, serving as food for fish, turtles, and other marine mammals that migrate through the ocean.
Now, join Gerhard Jarms – a scientist from the Zoological Institute of the University of Hamburg and experienced jellyfish expert – on a journey to explore some of the world’s most exotic jellyfish habitats. From the mysterious Periphylla of the northern Atlantic to tropical coral reefs off western Papua, this documentary showcases amazing footage of these beautiful creatures in their natural environment.
The expedition begins at Pico Island in Azores – known as a jellyfish paradise – where you can witness majestic jellies gliding along rough seas and hiding in caves. Then travel to cold nutrient-rich waters off Vancouver Island – where thousands of jellyfish peacefully drift through dark green waters. Witness Jellyfish Lake in Pacific Ocean and explore stunning coral reefs off Australia before finally encountering one of nature’s deadliest creatures: The Box Jellyfish or Sea Wasp by Australia’s coast.
