Have you seen these jellyfish washing up on BC beaches this summer? We saw this one on Calvert Island. They’re called By-the-wind-sailor, sea raft, purple sail, or little sail – or by their scientific name Velella velella. They eat plankton and are eaten by nudibranchs. It looks like just one individual but it’s actually a whole colony of all-male OR all-female polyps! Some polyps are in charge of reproduction while others are for protection.
Another by-the-wind-sailor jellyfish, aka Vellela velella, this one on beautiful West Beach of Calvert Island. Have you seen Velella this summer? Where?
