Introducing Jamileh!

Jamileh is a researcher in marine biology at SDU, with a passion for jellyfishes! She arrived in Denmark two years ago, to study the evolution of the ecosystems in the Baltic sea under the climate change. Her most recent project, GoJelly, is a European collaboration studying jellyfish blooms and looking for potential uses of jellyfishes, from cooking to cleaning the oceans. In this episode, she shared her amazement for the diversity of jellyfish species and her insight into their place in our future lives!

Portrait of Jamileh

“My Italian partner came up with their own ideas on how to prepare the fresh biomass for the cooking and dehydrate the jellyfish. It’s now on the way for European patent and they also filled a document to introduce jellyfish as a novel food for European countries. Once Europe accepts this new research as a novel food, you can think about producing jellyfish for restaurants.”
