It's not unusual for jellyfish to wash ashore on a New Jersey beach but you don't typically see blue button jellyfish. The jellyfish, known for its brilliant color, is so rare that a jellyfish expert said he has never been seen one here before. That is, until Suzanne Schenker found four in Beach Haven last month.
This particular type of jellyfish is more common in Florida and it's likely that it was pushed north from Hurricane Florence. According to NJ.com, there have been reports of blue button jellyfish washing ashore in other parts of the state too.
