Are Jellyfish Taking Over The Oceans?

(OCEANS/JELLYFISH) Despite popular belief that these gelatinous sea creatures are taking over the world's oceans, studies suggest there is in fact a 20-year cycle which directly correlates to the abundance of jellyfish in various parts of the world.

In fact, multidecadal cycles are common in nature, whether in growth patterns and populations in organisms or physical circumstances such as the oxygen concentration of the oceans.
