Barnegat Bay

venomous clinging jellyfish
Between May and October each year the Barnegat Bay Partnership (on the heels of their State of the Bay Report release), samples with a 50-foot seine net at numerous parts of Barnegat Bay looking for juvenile fish. Officials have come across a variety of estuarine fish since 2012, but among them four are jellyfish species of which certain types have a potent and harmful sting.
