Published on September 28, 2006, Duluth News-Tribune (MN) A tiny creature rarely seen by most Northland residents is showing up in local lakes this year, probably because of high water temperatures and low water levels.
Freshwater jellyfish have been reported in a few area lakes in recent weeks, with samples taken from at least two.While they have been around for years, most people have never seen one because the jellyfish spend most of their lives as underwater polyps that live on or near lake bottoms.
