[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Jellyfish are not real fish, after all they have no gills or fins. They are a clump of all-purpose cells that work together to capture and eat food. They are often called "swimming stomachs".
They have no nervous system or blood flow; the only specialized organs seem to be their poisonous tentacles and their gonads.
this particular specimen was seen moving in shallow water south of Powell River, BC.
