This is a repeat posting, but below is additional information on training sessions along with some pictures to help ID jellyfish in the attached.

 

REPORT JELLYFISH SIGHTINGS ON YOUR SMARTPHONE

Do you ever run into Lion’s mane jellyfish, comb jellies or sea nettles when you’re fishing or swimming in Narragansett Bay? Some of these charismatic carnivores and other gelatinous plankton can sting, consume 10 times their weight each day in larvae of commercially important fish and shellfish species and other zooplankton prey, and cause nuisance blooms or “smacks” of jellies that interfere with human uses of coastal waters in late summer and early fall. However the jellies may also be useful indicators of environmental changes in Rhode Island waters related to coastal development, water quality, overfishing, aquaculture and global warming.

 

A group at Brown University is field-testing a crowd-sourced, geographically based application (collector for arcgis) for smartphones, ipads and androids. The free app allows anglers, surfers, beachgoers and others to report their observations of eight different species of “jellies” that occur commonly in RI waters, along with associated weather and water conditions. The observations are mapped almost instantaneously in a Geographic Information System database maintained by Brown University, and can be viewed on your telephone or ipad when you’re logged in to the collector app.

 

The researchers want to get broader coverage of RI waters, year-round, in order to learn where jellies are, and are not occurring. If you are interested in participating, visit their Facebook page, RI jellywatch Or contact james_corbett@brown.edu. Detailed instructions are attached to this email.

 

IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN JELLYFISH MONITORING, PLEASE READ THE ATTACHED INSTRUCTIONS and FIELD GUIDE.

 

 

TRAINING/INFO SESSIONS WILL BE HELD ON:

 

JULY 14th AT NORTH KINGSTOWN COMMUNITY CENTER (8-9pm)

JULY 15th AT ROGERS LIBRARY, BRISTOL  (7:30-8:30pm)

 

 

Contact james_corbett@brown.edu if you need information regarding the training/info sessions.
