Re: Nettles clogging strainer

Huh... learn something every day.. So 'sea nettles' are small jellyfish? How small generally?

We get large infestations of moon jellys but they are usually too large to get taken into intakes. Can't imaging what you might do to prevent pulling them in.. would another type of strainer handle them better?
