    Jellyfish are zooplanktonic organisms commonly found in coastal and offshore water of all oceans in the world. The true jellyfish are the planktonic stages of three cnidarian classes: the Hydrozoa, the Scyphozoa, and the Cubozoa. The occurrence of jellyfish blooms, beach stranding as well as interference with fisheries is reported from various parts of the world. Spatiotemporal dynamics of jellyfish are highly variable, and irregular blooms or stranding of jellyfish make it difficult to predict. Mass beaching of pneumatophore of blue button jelly was observed in the beaches of Dakshina Kannada during the second week of September 2020.
