Aquarium Feeds Peanut Butter To A Jellyfish

Being an aquarist must be a mentally straining job, because researchers P. Zelda Montoya and Barret L. Christie from the Children’s Aquarium at Fair Park in Dallas, Texas have begun to conceive of some rather crackpot experiments.

Case in point: they recently fed peanut butter to a jellyfish just to see if they could (pg. 14), creating the first seafood sandwich to come loaded with peanut flavor straight out of the ocean, although those who like more peanut butter and less jelly will have to look elsewhere.

It may seem like they were just having a bit of punny fun at the expense of their jellyfish, but the search for cheap protein replacements that are also from sustainable sources is of vital importance for many aquariums struggling to stay in business.

And you thought a peanut butter jellyfish was only a shirt in the Neatoshop!
