Gelatinous macroplankton

Organism : Cnidarian Jellyfish
Species : Pelagia noctiluca
Description : Many marine organisms have a gelatinous consistency. They float and drift with the currents - the definition of plankton. Represented here (bottom left) are two cnidarians: the jellyfish Pelagia noctiluca and the siphonophore Hippopodius hippopus. We can also see (upper left corner) a tunicate: the salp Salpa fusiformis - Photo : C. et N. Sardet
