Jellyfish Food Chain

Category: Food Chain.

Jellyfish feed on plankton (such as phytoplankton and zooplankton), fish eggs, copepods, krill, shrimp and small fish. Jellyfish are consumed by other animals such as bigger fish (like tuna, salmon and ocean sunfish), sea turtles (such as leatherback turtles) and other jellyfish. For jellyfish that stays close to the bottom of the ocean, they maybe eaten by crustaceans (such as crabs and lobsters) and even starfish. Read in detail: what do jellyfish eat?
