Welcome to the Jellyfish Stalker website. This site is designed to identify and track jellyfish along the North Carolina coast throughout the year. It is an interactive website that allows you to enter your information whenever you spot a jellyfish. This data is essential for understanding the biology of these animals as their numbers are increasing along our coastline. Please provide as much information as possible about your sighting.
