AUSTRALIA: Jellyfish fishery planned to serve Asian market
Queensland Fishery Service is hoping to set up a jellyfish fishery. The fishery would meet growing demand in Asian countries for dried jellyfish. According to QFS senior policy officer Phil Gaffney, dried jellyfish can fetch up to A$60 (US$33.1m).

The developmental fishery will assess the sustainability of harvesting jellyfish in the Great Sandy Strait.
