Abstract

Instances of predation and scavenging of jellyfish (pelagic Scyphozoa, Hydrozoa and Ctenophora) by benthic invertebrates are reviewed and presented. Sea anemones and decapod crabs are widespread as well as common predators or scavengers of jellyfish. Dead or dying jellyfish are also preyed upon by species of Echinodermata.
