I young son was twice affected by a jelly fish in Corpus Christi Texas. I cause much discomfort but thankfully no long term affects. It is hard to avoid them sometimes because there might be just tenicle floating in the area and no evidence of the fish so the tenicles are hard to see.

I hear there are 100 lb. jelly fish in Japan. Is there any useful purpose for jelly fish for humans?
