According to Uye, right now Japan's giant jellyfish outbreaks are like typhoons—they can't be controlled, but they can be predicted.

He and his colleagues are working on a system for creating accurate jellyfish forecasts, so Japan's fishers will hopefully be able to better prepare themselves for upcoming invasions.
