Jellyfish bloom in Japan

A nuclear power plant in Japan had to slow down because jellyfish blocked the cooling water intake. The nuke plant is not alone, Japanese fishermen have also been plagued by blooms of giant jellyfish in recent years, some as large as sumo wrestlers.

Whither our ocean when jellyfish are the new fish? Is this Jeremy Jackson's "rise of slime?"
