Welcome to my freshwater jellyfish site

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. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have further questions.

How Can I Help?
If you have seen the freshwater jellyfish, please tell me about it using the electronic form found here. You may also submit the requested information by email to tpeard1700@comcast.net. The information you submit will be added to my database and will help you and me better understand the distribution of the freshwater jellyfish, Craspedacusta sowerbii.  Even if the location where you saw jellyfish is already listed for an earlier year on my website , please submit a new sighting report.  This will help to keep the database current, and I will add the new year date to the website list.  Thank you.
