Scyphozoa have attracted the eye of many sorts of individuals. Naturalists watch their swish locomotion. Fishermen might dread the swarms that may hinder fishing or consume larval fish. Bathers retreat from the water in the event that they are stung. humans from a few Asiatic nations consume the medusae.
