Moon jellyfish at the Albuquerque Aquarium

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Jellyfish aren’t the safest sea creatures to actually interact with in the wild, but aren’t they interesting to look at from a safe location? ABQ BioPark Aquarium Manager Holly Casman stopped by KRQE This Morning with some moon jellyfish which are one of about 200 species of jellyfish.

This species of jellyfish has a shorter life span compared to their counterparts and are not typically the strongest swimmers. Casman says they actually have to keep them in a tank with a constantly moving current to help them move at the aquarium.

The Albuquerque Aquarium is open seven days a week from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Locals can keep up with what the aquarium and the rest of the ABQ BioPark on their website. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
