The most delicious fish I've ever had, and only on two occasions, was a Louvar which feeds on jellyfish. They aren't generally sough after commercially as they aren't particularly easy to come by, and are only found as part of a bycatch. If you ever have the opportunity, eat it.  It's meat is so light and delicious it makes White Sea Bass meat look like dirty dish water.

Perhaps a marine biologist or professional fisherman could chime in and answer me this:  can Louvar be commercially raised and fed jellyfish that is so prolific these days?

Harden up Britain. 500 sightings?
There has probably been more than 500 sting cases treated in Australia already this year.

Wow, I've always wanted to try Louvar.

Of course, these are English jellyfish. They sting ever so politely, and even then it's only mildly irritating.

I wish they were actual jelly.  That way I could enjoy the beach, my sliced bread, Peanut butter spread, and fresh jellyfish

The wife and I have a beach-house on an island off the Gulf Coast of Florida. A couple years back, I got stung by a jelly while swimming maybe a hundred feet from shore. So once in the 7 or 8 years we've had the house. Sharks in the water are far more common here, but even those are Lemon sharks that want nothing to do with you.

We usually spend the most of the summer here every year, and this year the big excitement was a loggerhead nest hatched right in front of the house. But as it was a moonless night, and some inner-island asshole renter left his house lights on all night, all the hatchlings made their way inland. We woke up to a couple dozen babies all around our house, some having made their way across the street behind our house to the inland houses. We collected a dozen and a half live babies, a few dead guys, and waited for the turtle lady to collect them. We got to help release them later that night, and that was pretty cool.

You're thinking Canadian jellyfish. English jellyfish get drunk, wreck the beach, and start a riot.

Oh thank goodness I don't live in Australia where those things are oh, ok, England.. bolocks.

That's why I don't man scape.  I don't want to add to the confusion you are suffering from.

Empty the sea of fishes, and jellyfishes fill the niche.

I think you're confusing that with either the sao paolo/rio or watts jellyfish
