Issue 15, Published July 2020
We are now delivering The Marine Biologist magazine four times a year, and we wish you a warm welcome to the first ever July edition. Gelatinous zooplankton - better known as jellyfish - are the subject of fascination and some concern for scientists and sea users alike. We are proud to present our headline article on a groundbreaking system to automatically detect and identify jellyfish.
You can read a selected article from the latest edition (see contents list below), but to read the whole edition you need to become a member of the MBA. However, back issues of the magazine are now available online via the magazine reader, so you can read The Marine Biologist anytime, anywhere!
