|Abstract:||Between March, 2003 and February, 2004, stranded large jellyfish were surveyed daily, 163 times in all, along "Kitahama" beach (ca. 300m long) in Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture Japan. The stranded jellyfish, 4,330 individuals in total, comprised five species of hydromedusac (Aequorea coerulescens, Vellela vellela, Porpita pacifica, Physalia physalis, Agalma okenii) , two species of scyphomedusae (Aurelia aurita, Chrysaora melanaster), and one species of ctenophore (Bolinopsis mikado). Monthly changes of each species in both the frequency of strandings and the proportion of individuals to all species are given and compared to the previous record during 2000-2003 (KUBOTA 2003a).|
