SC jellyfish operation beginning this month

Posted: Updated:

BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - A company that will harvest and sell cannonball jellyfish plans to begin operations in Beaufort County later this month.

The Beaufort Gazette reports  that Carolina Jelly Ball LLC plans to catch jellyfish and bring them to a dock on St. Helena Island beginning by Feb. 22.

The company is still seeking state water discharge permits so the jellyfish can be processed at a vacant plant in Lobeco in northern Beaufort County.

Company spokesman Steven Giese says for the time being, the company will collect the jellyfish and ship them elsewhere for processing.

The jellyfish will be processed and dried. They mainly will be shipped to Asian markets where they are considered a delicacy.
