Ever wonder what that jelly-like blob on the beach is? Want to know how to identify a bloom of jellyfish? This guide was created to help identify common gelatinous animals encountered at sea or beachcombing. With this guide you can appreciate the diversity of gelatinous animals on the Oregon coast and gain some insight into their natural history. This guide is not exhaustive and abundances of these organisms are dependent on ocean conditions. Enjoy! (Oregon Sea Grant, 2018)
