How much damage has the bioluminiscent comb jelly done to the Black Sea?

    Invasive ctenophores (Latin for comb-carries) in the family of jellyfish have done a good deal of damage to the ecosystem of the black sea.  The worst offender is the mnemiopsis (Latin for grape-eye or brain-eye, I think).  Increased salinity due to pollution in the black sea has caused their population to soar into the billions, virtually wiping out anchove and scad in their waters.
