  author={Jing Dong and Lian Jiang and Ke Tan and Hai-Ying Liu and J. Purcell and Pei-jun Li and Chang-chen Ye},
Among the edible species, jellyfish Rhopilema esculentum, is one of the most abundant and important fishery species in China. The jellyfish fishery is characterized by considerable fluctuations in catch and a very short fishing season. In this article, we first review the research results on the biology of R. esculentum, which previously were published in Chinese, as related to the jellyfish enhancement and fishery. Next, we review results from enhancement experiments conducted from 1984 to… Expand

The Natural Ecology and Stock Enhancement of the Edible Jellyfish (Rhopilema esculentum Kishinouye, 1891) in the Liaodong Bay, Bohai Sea, China
The chapter tries to review the natural ecology of R. esculentum, which includes the distribution and migration, growth model, and survival rate in the Liaodong Bay (LDB), and the jellyfish fishery and population dynamic in the LDB based on the results of field studies for more than 20 years.

Contrasting Trends in Populations of Rhopilema esculentum and Aurelia aurita in Chinese Waters
The variation in reproductive and life history traits between R. esculentum and A. aurita may also explain the different recruitment potentials of the two species. Expand
Study on the carry capacity of edible jellyfish fishery in Liaodong Bay
Jellyfish fishing is a special type of fishery that mainly exists in some countries of East and Southeast Asia. China has the largest jellyfish fishery yield in the world with an annual harvest ofExpand
Fingerling production and stock enhancement of Mahisefid (Rutilus frisii kutum) lessons for others in the south of Caspian Sea
Rutilus frisii kutum (Kamensky 1901) is one of the economically important fishes that migrate for spawning to rivers in the Caspian Sea. However, the fish populations have slowly decreased in recentExpand
Beneficial co-culture of jellyfish Rhopilema esculenta (Kishinouye) and sea cucumber Apostichopus japonicus (Selenka): implications for pelagic-benthic coupling
Results showed that jellyfish culture accelerated the settling velocity of total particulate matter (TPM) and co-culturing sea cucumbers with jellyfish may help alleviate benthic nutrient loading due to the jellyfish and provide a secondary cash crop. Expand
Non-indigenous upside-down jellyfish Cassiopea andromeda in shrimp farms (Brazil)
The results indicate that the jellyfish in aquaculture systems are similar in terms of morphology and genetics to those found in natural environments in Bermuda, Egypt, Hawaii, Florida, and elsewhere in Brazil and are related to specimens originally inhabiting the Red Sea. Expand
Intraguild predation by polyps of three scyphozoan jellyfish: Nemopilema nomurai, Aurelia coerulea, and Rhopilema esculentum
The finding that polyps of A. coerulea aggressively preyed on polyp of other species may help understand other such systems of jellyfish bloom in the world. Expand
A model for the transportation and distribution of jellyfish Rhopilema esculentum for stock enhancement in the Liaodong Bay, China
A numerical model for jellyfish Rhopilema esculentum stock enhancement is developed for the first time. The model is based on an operational ocean circulation-surface wave coupled forecasting systemExpand
First record of Phyllorhiza sp. (Cnidaria: Scyphozoa) in a Chinese coastal aquaculture pond
Background It has been suggested that aquaculture ponds on the Chinese coast could act as breeding grounds for scyphozoans. Here, we present the first record of the scyphomedusa Phyllorhiza sp. in anExpand
Natural predators of polyps of three scyphozoans: Nemopilema nomurai, Aurelia coerulea, and Rhopilema esculentum
Jellyfish blooms have become a hot research topic in recent decades because they pose a serious threat to fisheries, coastal industries, tourism, and the marine ecosystem. The life cycle ofExpand


Jellyfish fisheries in southeast Asia
A few large jellyfish species in the order Rhizostomeae constitute an important food in Chinese cooking. For more than 1700 years, they have been exploited along the coasts of China. Such jellyfishExpand
The life cycle of scyphistoma could last for over one full year and a few individuals stro-bilated repeatedly up to eighteen times in one year and thirty-two times in two years when they were cultured under variable temperatures. Expand
Jellyfish as food
With the great abundance of cannonball jellyfish in the U. S. coastal waters, turning this jellyfish into value-added products could have tremendous environmental and economic benefits. Expand
Effect of Temperature
A positive temperature coefficient is the term which has been used to indicate that an increase in solubility occurs as the temperature is raised, whereas a negative coefficient indicates a decreaseExpand
Effect of temperature
Methods for measuring the effects of temperature on rubber, both in the short and long term, are described. This includes thermal expansion, glass transition, tests for low temperature resistance andExpand
