We present evidence of a strong response to light by Chrysaora quinquecirrha, the common sea nettle, based on studies in large enclosures (mesocosms). This result is somewhat unexpected due to the reported absence of light-sensing ocelli in marginal sense organs of this scyphomedusan jelly- fish. We used 5-m-deep mesocosms to document light responses and vertical migration of Cquin- quecirrha in both natural and manipulated light fields. Chrysaora quinquecirrha appear to be negatively… CONTINUE READING
