Found in every ocean, jellyfish are not technically "fish." Jellies have an umbrella like structure that allows them to float beautifully in the water. Watch out though, some of them sting!

Conditions and Diseases

How would a doctor treat jellyfish sting?

With regular household vinegar or I would recommend a product called has 5% acetic acid, the doctor recommended level to best provide 1st aid relief for jelly stings. Used it myself; have seen it used on every time...good luck and keep your sunny side up. BL


By the time a sting victim reaches a doctor, it is too late for any topical treatments. Vinegar does nothing at any time to relieve any pain. It should only be used to inhibit further envenomation from adherent box jellyfish tentacles, as it will disable further firing of their stinging cells. If you are not in Australia or the south Indo-Pacific region, then do not use anything but seawater to help remove tentacles, since even vinegar has not proven to prevent further stinging in any non-box jellyfish species. The important thing in any major envenomation is to treat for heart or respiratory failure.

A doctor would provide life-support, anti-vemom (only in the case of Chironex fleckeri, at this point), and analgesic treatment. He would laugh at StingMate. That is quackery.


How do you describe a jellyfish's head?

Jellyfish do not have a head: they are radially symmetrical animals that have a sack-like body with a single opening serving as a mouth, and a bell extending out from the bottom of the sack that allows the jellyfish to swim.

What are Irikanji?

Irikanji are deadly jellyfish located in northern Australia about the size of an adult thumbnail. Irikanji have tentacles from 3 to 4 in. long. Irikanji are very hard to see, very elusive but don't be fooled; over 2/3 of people are stung. Be careful, their venom is very potent. It's even worse than the famous Portuguese man o' war. It is over 100 times more potent than its box jellyfish cousin kyrenex fleckeri, 300 more times potent than a king cobra bite and 1000 times more potent than a tarantula. Thankfully the venom takes 20 minutes to kill you; that means 20 minutes to get to the hospital & 20 minutes of mind numbing excruciating pain. The Irikanji has stingers on its bell so when stung douse the area with vinegar. Oh and there is no existing cure for Irikanji stings.


How does jellyfish defence itself?

They get into a position where the prey or enemy are under they, then they shoot microscopic darts that are filled with a paralizing poisen into the target which will result in agonizing pain for the recipient.

Are jellyfishes sentient?

Scientists believe that jellyfish are indeed sentient.

Sentience is the ability of an organism to perceive the environment and experience sensations such as pain, suffering, pleasure, and comfort. An organism that is sentient has the ability to receive stimuli from the environment, and then interpret the stimuli as sensations or emotions. The sensations may feel good, bad, or neutral. The organism determines how best to act based on the sensation or emotion, and uses bodily responses or behaviors, in order to avoid negative sensations such as pain and suffering, and achieve positive sensations, such as pleasure or comfort.

Dr. Anders Garm of the University of Copenhagen described the visual system of the box jellyfish, in which an interactive matrix of 24 eyes of four distinct types, two of them very similar to human eyes, allow them to navigate through the mangrove swamps they inhabit. Dr. Richard A. Satterlie of the University of North Carolina at Wilmington revealed that the neurons of jellyfish coalesce into distinctive structures that act as integrating centers, taking in sensory information and translating it into the appropriate response. Dr. David J. Albert of the Roscoe Bay Marine Biological Laboratory in Vancouver, British Columbia, believes that jellyfish have brains. They avoid being swept out to sea by diving down, they avoid fresh water, they like to congregate into schools, and they can detect predators. These are all organized behaviors that are controlled by a central nervous system.

Marc Bekoff, emeritus professor at the University of Colorado, Boulder, one of the pioneering cognitive ethologists in the United States, believes that "Scientists do have ample, detailed, empirical facts to declare that nonhuman animals are sentient beings, and with each study, there are fewer and fewer skeptics."

How deep can a jellyfish go in the water?

The depth at which jellyfish are found depends on the species. Scientists have located jellyfish as deep as 9000 metres, but it is believed that they may exist even deeper than that. This is typical of the Deep-sea jellyfish, which is a member of the Coronate family.


How do jellyfish reproduce?

First the male jellyfish produce the sperm that are released out of the mouth of the male jellyfish. The sperm swim into the mouth of the female jellyfish and fertilise the eggs. The fertilised eggs are released and float to the bed of the sea. They are now called Planulas and will float for up to six days until they attach themselves to something hard like a rock or shell. They will then develop into polyps. Polyps can live like this for over five years using there upturned tentacles to catch shrimp and other small fish. At this stage in their life the jellyfish will look a bit like a sea anemone or a tree with branch like features sticking out of it.

After their many years like this they will have several grooves in will grow deeper in the side of them. The polyp is now a Strobila. The strobila's grooves get so deep it eventually cuts the jellyfish up, and like stack of coins the jellyfish larvae float off to start its next stage of life as an adult jellyfish.

A jellyfish reproduces asexually.

hello mum
In most cases, both release sperm and eggs into the surrounding water, where the (unprotected) eggs are fertilized and mature into new organisms. In a few species, the sperm swim into the female's mouth fertilizing the eggs within the female's body where they remain for the early stages of development. In moon jellies, the eggs lodge in pits on the oral arms, which form a temporary brood chamber for the developing planula larvae.
They reproduce using cemacels to their bodies and plop.
by eggs
A female jelly fish rekeases eggs into the water and the male releases sperm.

Once the egg is fertilized it developes into a larva and attaches to a solid surface. It is now a polyp. The polyp grows and begins to form buds that become tiny medusae. The young medusae bud of the polyp and the cycle begins again.

Do blue bottle stings hurt more than jellyfish stings?

No, the Irukandji (Carukia barnesi, et al) box jellies are the most painful and have the longest lasting symptoms. While not usually considered life threatening, the systemic effects of Irukandji jellies include severe low back pain, progressive limb cramping, nausea, vomiting, headache, anxiety, hypertension, tachycardia, pulmonary edema, and feelings of impending doom so overwhelming that patients have been reported to beg their doctors to kill them and get it over with . While there have been only two reported deaths from Irukandji envenomation, dozens are hospitalized each year in Australia.

Blue bottles (Physalia utriculus) on the other hand, deliver a fierce sting, but the pain usually subsides within an hour, and without serious systemic complications. No known deaths from blue bottle jellies have been reported. Three recorded deaths have been attributed to a much larger sister species, the Atlantic Portuguese Man of War (Physalia physalis).

The deadliest jelly in the world by far is the Chironex fleckeri box jelly (marine stinger, sea wasp), with at least 80 recorded deaths in Australia alone during modern times. The sting, while excruciatingly painful (feels like a red-hot branding iron), is somewhat more amenable to pain medication and quicker to abate than Irukandji stings.
