This Jellyfish Doesn’t Have Chance

Just received this great photo from a friend of friend.  Gary Bernier took this while diving at the ship wrecks off  North Carolina. A cookie goes to the person who can name both the jellyfish and fish.

Have dive photographs?  Send them along and we will post them at DSN!

  1. Possibly a Chrysaora jelly by the markings on the top and sides, but the tentacles don’t look right… Might be the photo though. The fish is mullet! Which is amazing smoked.

  2. Could it be cigar minnows (Decapterus punctatus) swimming around a sea nettle, Chrysaora quinquecirrha? I don’t think they are eating it however but maybe smaller critters associated with the the jelly

  3. My ID for the fish are a jack of some sort (Trachurus sp.) All the lateral line scales are highly developed compared with the other body scales. From what I recall of Decapterus, only the posterior scales are well developed. Jump in with a spear, Kevin :-)
