AbstractJellyfish interactions with human activities are manifold, but gelatinous blooms have always a negative feel to most people. Much research effort is currently devoted to addressing jellyfish population dynamics and the development of forecasting and mitigation tools. However, the lack of long-term and spatial-wide data series represents a key impediment. In the framework of the Med-Jellyrisk Project (www.jellyrisk.eu), a Citizen Science approach is sustaining a prolonged database on Mediterranean jellyfish records to support the development of mitigation tools, e.g. forecasting or risk maps. Several initiatives are required for promoting engagement and interaction with local communities, validating the data, and improving the observation network both in the amount and the quality of observations. As a case study, we present here the most important achievements obtained in the Catalan coast (Spain), together with a general overview of other national initiatives in the Mediterranean Sea and in the rest of the world
