Some speculate that these blooms may be attributed to overfishing, resulting in jellyfish taking the place of fish that normally would consume the same prey.
Jellyfish have limited control over their movement and mostly free-float, but can use a hydrostatic skeleton that controls the water pouch in their body to actuate vertical movement.

Most jellyfish pass through two different body forms during their life cycle.
A group of jellyfish is often called a "smack."
The salted jellyfish does not have any fishy or unpleasant odors.
Jellyfish can detect the touch of other animals using a nervous system called a nerve net, which is found in its epidermis.

Many species of jellyfish are also capable of congregating into large swarms or "blooms" consisting of hundreds or even thousands of individuals.

Only about five percent of the body of a jellyfish is solid matter; the rest is water. ... They are composed of three layers: an outer layer, called the epidermis; a middle layer made of a thick, elastic, jelly-like substance called mesoglea; and an inner layer, called the gastrodermis.

The immortal jellyfish (as it is better known popularly) propagate and then, faced with the normal career path of dying, they opt instead to revert to a sexually immature stage.
The thing is, while jellyfish don't have a brain or central nervous system, they do have a very basic set of nerves at the base of their tentacles. These nerves detect touch, temperature, salinity etc. and the jellyfish reflexively respond to these stimuli.
A typical jellyfish is composed of two structures: an external epidermis and an internal gastrodermis. ... Although jellyfish are mainly water, they do have nerves, reproductive cells and muscle. The muscle is key to short-distance propulsion.
