Ocean sunfish and sea turtles (such as Leatherback Turtles) are

predators of jellyfish.

Other species of jellyfish are among the most common and

important jellyfish predators, some of which specialize in jellies.

Other predators include tuna, shark, swordfish, sea turtles, and at

least one species of Pacific salmon. Sea birds sometimes pick

symbiotic crustaceans from the jellyfish bells near the sea's

surface, inevitably feeding also on the jellyfish hosts of these

amphipods or young

crabs and

"Shrimp">shrimp.
