  • The family of the jellyfish or medusae are not only the most venomous ocean inhabitants but also some of the deepest divers. Medusae have been found as deep as 8.300 meters. Their existence is paramount to the oceans. Many of the large migrations of fish and mammals would not be possible without the existence of jellies. They are a crucial part of the food chain, many fish feed on jellies and in turn mammals or larger migratory predators feed on fish.The scientist Gerhard Jarms of the Zoological Institute of the University of Hamburg takes us on a journey into the exotic world of jellyfish. He is one of the most renowned medusae scientists in the world. Our expedition begins in the northern Atlantic where we will find the mysterious periphylla. We will continue on to the Azores in the Atlantic. There we will search for the XY jellies that seek shelter in caves in rough seas.
    In the Pacific we will swim with the jellies in the famous Jellyfish Lake and last but not
    least we will explore some of the world's most beautiful coral reefs of western Papua. And at the very end danger lurks around every corner as we set out to search off Australia's coast for the fatal sea wasp- one of the most poisonous ocean inhabitants.

    This is an amazing documentary!
    More information : this video was probably made before the discovery, but we now know why the crowned medusa (peryphilla peryphilla) is red. In the deep sea, no red light is normally supposed to be present because of the darkness, so many deep sea animals' eyes are not able to see red light. Therefore, animals that might feed on the jellyfish probably won't see it and peryphilla peryphilla will pass unseen.
    Many other animals in the deep sea are red or use red light either to hide or hunt. For more information about the deep sea, watch the second episode of the BBC's "The Blue Planet".

      Did ya know some Jellyfish are biological immortal? Can´t believe they didn't mention that in the vid but some could technically have been alive for 66 million years if they could have somehow avoided getting eaten for that long.

      Marianne Way also being red means if the animal is eaten the preditor that eats said Medusa will not give itself away to larger creaters

    I was the unfortunate victim of a man o' war "jellyfish" and i can tell you that it was the most excruciating pain I've ever felt in my life. I was 10, visiting Florida for the second time and came across a full blown adult headed to shore. i picked it up with my hands not being told what it was. I learned my lesson!

      Before quarantine hit, the California Academy of Sciences was going to open a jellyfish exhibit. I was so excited because it was on my birthday and I was going to go with my friends. Sadly, quarantine ruined it but I'm hopeful I will get to see it one day.

    When I was 10, I got stung in the face and chest by a blue Portuguese Man O War. It was extremely painful. The doctor put meat tenderizer on the areas so the stings would fallout. Fortunately the pain lasted only a few hours.

    I have a phobia of ocean creatures, though I've never swam in the ocean, I've visited it many times from the beach. Creatures like these and sharks are what keep me out of the water....they're amazing to look at on a video.

    I liked the documentary, but it kinda weirded me out with how Jarms was basically the only one who got to talk about the Jellies.
    "We're going to Townsville to find out more about the Box Jellyfish. Here's Jarms again instead of any of the scientists that work there."
    "Now we're at Cairns, where this scientist would like to show us the Box Jellyfish's arsenal. We're not going to let him talk however, probably because he isn't Jarms."

    I believe they are red because the color red is harder to see by predators. Some predators have "nightvision" wich they use to catch prey deep under the sea:)

    They're red because the spectrum isn't visible to predators at that depth. The lights are an alarm, an attempt to not frighten off the predator, but to attract a bigger predator to eat that one. like a burglar alarm. It's evident how old this doc is, we know so much more now.

    there is one big problem I had with this documentary. "the Portuguese man of war" is not a jelly fish so I do not understand why it was so often named and described in this video. Both Jelly fish and the man of war are part of the same phylum but that would include 11.000 species and this was clearly mend to be a documentary about jelly fish

    Just one complaint that have happened over and over in this documentary even though it’s not true.
    A Jellyfish’s sting is VENOMOUS not poisonous.
    Poison refers to toxins that would harm or kill an animal if it were to ingest a poisonous animal or plant. Poison only happens when something is ingested.
    Venom on the other hand is a defense mechanism of animals. Venom refers to something that makes skin or blood contact then injects venomous toxins into an animals to harm or kill it. This can be anything from bites to stings.
    Spiders are venomous whereas mushrooms are poisonous.
    So a jellyfish is venomous because it touches its prey/ predators with its tentacles and injects venom into the animal using microscopic needles basically.
    Sorry this really bothered me and it’s upsetting that a documentary that is used to inform people if using an incorrect term. The only way it would be correct is if it showed an animal dying after eating a jellyfish, not getting stung by one.

    Yes, these jellyfish may be beautiful, some. But after staying in Myrtle Beach for 5 days claiming I would not go in the ocean because of fear of jellyfish. I had watched all these other people including my sons swimming safely. The day before we left I finally went in. In less than 10 minutes I was stung by one. It felt like my leg was on fire. I saw my doctor when we got back and because I still had red lines, I found out I’m allergic to them.

      I got to touch some Moon Jellyfish at an aquarium. Their stings are considered not painful (honestly just feels like a bit of nettle). They are so soft and squishy! I have gotten stung in the ocean before at Myrtle Beach. It wasn't bad at all, they were tiny jellyfish tho, kinda cute. and It only really hurt when I was out of the water. I did get some red marks from them, but they went away by the next day.

      Whenever I visit the Black Sea I pick them up. If they're moon jellies they're fine. I haven't seen other ones other than those.. Don't want to lol.

    If the jelly fish can't see, how did it develop bioluminesence?

    I gave a hard time understanding how someone can think that all this nature can come from slime. And more accurately nothing.

    I got stung by one in Hong Kong. I have learned my lesson now. The sea can be toxic. Don't believe they evolved though.

    Not all binomial names are "Latin", but merely Latinized to sound more Latin. So, calling a creature's binomial nomenclature designation Latin isn't necessarily correct.

    “Disgusting”? Most jellies are beautiful and fascinating. Also, Portuguese Men of War are not jellies. They are actually a symbiotic combination of two different animals. Finally, most experts refer to these creatures as “jellies”, not “medusae”, an archaic term.

    Some of those clips had ctenophores in them and although they're called comb jellies they're not jellyfish. Honest mistake though, I just want to be a smartass.

    Growing up on the Severn River (US, not UK), I hated jellyfish. We called them "sea nettles" as well. They'd come in around August and we still had to swim... Swim team competitions were held regardless of jellyfish concentrations and sometimes there was one about every two meters. You'd swim through them until your eyes swelled shut :-(
