Talk: Jolly Jellyfish

November 06, 2019

This summer we saw high numbers of jellyfish around our shores and one ginormous jellyfish at Pendennis head went viral. To celebrate these amazing creatures on world jellyfish day we have two exciting speakers to share with you their interesting research:

Jason Hall-Spencer is Professor of Marine Biology at the Universities of Plymouth (UK) and Tsukuba (Japan) and an Adjunct Professor at Xiamen University (China). He has been investigating the effect of carbon dioxide driven ocean acidification and which species and marine communities are the most resistant. Slimy, jelly-like creatures of the oceans, such as jellyfish, are far more tolerant of rising marine carbon dioxide levels and are therefore more likely to proliferate in a warmer and increasingly acidified ocean.

Victoria Hobson is a lecturer in marine ecology at the University of Exeter and has worked as the lead marine biologist for the Royal Navy, as a marine consultant, and is a member of the Cornwall Inshore Fisheries and Conservation Authority. She has spent over a decade studying jellyfish ecology in UK waters. She will talk about UK jellyfish species, her tagging and survey work, current knowledge on the species we find in our local waters and the global outlook for jellyfish.
