Jellyfish are invading Japan. Solution - turn them into products

The industrious Japanese are at it again, seeing a crisis as an opportunity. Coastal Japan is being inundated with giant jellyfish that break nets and ruin fishing. Their large size, up to 200 kg each, mean they are hard to remove.

The massive Nomura jellyfish have decimated fishing villages by devouring fish eggs and tearing apart fishing nets. Swarms around Hawaii and Japan have wreaked havoc on tourism industries that rely heavily on snorkeling and boat tours.

What to do with them? How about turning them into a product to make money?
