Scientists may have an answer to the problem of food shortages - eating jellyfish. This could also protect endangered fish and other sea life. Researchers from Australia conducted a study of fishing around the world. They found that fishing nets caught 92 endangered species of seafood and 11 species of "critically endangered" fish. The researchers said this was not illegal as the fish were not protected. Researcher Dr Leslie Robertson said: "Despite national and international commitments to protect threatened species, we actively fish for many of these threatened species."

The researchers warned we are eating sea life that is on the brink of extinction. They said eating jellyfish could help protect fish that are in danger of disappearing from our oceans. Jellyfish could become a common sight on menus. The researchers said jellyfish could be a sustainable alternative to other kinds of fish. Dr Robertson said seafood is not as sustainable as we think. She added: "It is possible to manage our fisheries sustainably and eat species that can survive the fishing pressure. We just have to care about weird-looking squishy things like sea cucumbers."
