    Indeed there has been a dramatic increase in the jellyfish population worldwide in the last several years. Whenever there is a flux in population of a certain species it brings with it the risk of endangering the environment its lives in as well as the other species in it. According to eurocbc.org “jellyfish may be taking the place of fish in the food web of the seas” which could forever change the food chain in aquatic ecosystems. Additionally, the explosion of the jellyfish population has caused many problems such as a dramatic increase in stings and deaths per year. They also have caused havoc on fishermen, whose ships cannot sail smoothly due to mass amounts of jellyfish. They also are having a harder time catching fish because their nets are often filled, or damaged by jellyfish.
