The black sea nettle(Chrysaora achlyos), sometimes informally known as the Black jellyfish or Sarlacc Jellyfish, is a species of jellyfish that can be found in the waters of the Pacific Ocean. The black sea nettle is considered a giant jelly; its distinctive purplish bell can reach over three feet (91 cm) in diameter; its lacy, pinkish oral arms can reach nearly 20 feet (6 m) in length and its stinging tentacles 25 feet (7.6 m) or more.
(compound of the Greek words ωκεανός meaning “ocean” and γράφω meaning “to write”) also called oceanology or marine science - the branch of Earth science that studies the ocean. It covers a wide range of topics, including marine organisms and ecosystem dynamics; ocean currents, waves, and geophysical fluid dynamics; plate tectonics and the geology of the sea floor; and fluxes of various chemical substances and physical properties within the ocean and across its boundaries. These diverse topics reflect multiple disciplines that oceanographers blend to further knowledge of the world ocean and understanding of processes within it: biology, chemistry, geology, meteorology, and physics as well as geography.
i’d just like to take a moment to appreciate one of my new favorite fishes, the longnosed lancetfish
