Welcome to my freshwater jellyfish (Craspedacusta sowerbii) webpage (freshwaterjellyfish.org).  (This website previously was found at www.jellyfish.iup.edu.)

At this site you will find a great deal of information, including the distribution, natural history, life cycle and some current research about freshwater jellyfish. There also are pictures and movies to help you to confirm what you are seeing at your pond or lake and to assist you in convincing others that there really are freshwater jellyfish. This site is updated regularly as new sightings and updates accumulate.

Thank you to all who have contributed pictures, movies and sighting information for this site.Dr.Terry Peard
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.
