We know the Monterey Bay is a preserve, but this is just ridiculous! A massive swarm of jellies washed up along Monterey beaches this weekend, with patches of sea nettles so thick the water was transformed into extra s p i c y salsa! ๐ŸŒŠ๐ŸŒถ๐Ÿ”ฅ Everyone, please give a big shoutout to local photographer @mansonfotos for enduring stings until her teeth hurt while taking this photo! ๐Ÿคฆโ€โ™€๏ธโ™จ๏ธ

Purple-striped jellies are drifting in full force in the Monterey Bay right now, allowing us to enrich the genetics of our homegrown collection. Our jelly aquarists were the first to culture this striking local species in the late 90s, and theyโ€™re positively radiant at the moment. Thanks to guest @liz_lens for the snap!

OK, now THAT's excit-ctene! Our jelly aquarist extraordinaire MacKenzie is at sea with @mbari_news to study deep-sea jellies, including this *huge* and undescribed Aulacoctena ctenophore comb jelly! MacKenzie joins a team from @hopkinsmarinestation and @smithsoniannmnh to study deep sea life. They'll be at sea for the next week, so check out their expedition blog in our profile link!

Thanks to @mbari_news for the ๐Ÿ“ท and deep-sea ๐Ÿ“š! ... People often ask our deep-sea biologists how often they see a new species. The answer is often! There are countless species yet to be described in the deep sea. This little jelly is a perfect example. Only a few centimeters in diameters, it could easily be passed over by our underwater robots on a mission! But this one was seen swimming not far off the bottom 3,150 meters (>10,000 feet) deep in the Gulf of California and our biologists took the time to get a few close-up shots in hopes that it may help in the identification at a later date. โ € โ € We often talk about the importance of biodiversity in the ocean. One key element of biodiversity is how many different species live in a particular area. But in the deep sea, understanding biodiversity is difficult because so many species have yet to be given formal scientific names. Some animals, like this one, are so inconspicuous that they barely rate a nod from specialists in the field. But big or small, all of them contribute to our overall knowledge of biodiversity in the deep sea.โ €

Pelagic cormorant with the extra feathers-in-the-water flair. ๐Ÿ‘Œ Cormorants are nesting all up and down Cannery Row at the moment, including below our decks! Theyโ€™ve even been inspecting local divers to see if they happen to have any stray nesting materials... careful you donโ€™t look too cozy out there!

We think youโ€™re ready for this jelly, courtesy of @mbari_news ใƒปใƒปใƒป Far below the oceanโ€™s surface, sunlight does not reach the deep sea. But many deep-sea animals display an astonishing array of vibrant colors when they are illuminated by the bright lights on MBARIโ€™s remotely operated vehicles. The digestive organs of some jellies contain red or orange pigments that mask the blue light from glowing animals they have eaten. โ € โ € This beautiful red jelly, Crossota millsae, is somewhat rareโ€”in 30 years weโ€™ve only seen it approximately 100 times with our ROVs. It is named after one of our favorite jelly researchers, Dr. Claudia Mills.โ € โ € โ €
