我们来看一段相关的英文报道

    Police in Huzhou cracked a case involving fake jellyfish, according to a news report in Hangzhou last weekend.
    The police seized more than 150 kilograms of artificial jellyfish at the farmer's market on April 22. The three suspects started making the fake delicacy with sodium alginate, calcium chloride and aluminum sulfate in June of 2015. Since then, they have made more than 70,000 yuan in profits.
    One confessed that he had learned the trade from a "master" surnamed Jia in Changzhou. Within a year, Jia and his assistants were capable of producing more than 10 tons of fake jellyfish for a profit of more than 100,000 yuan. An investigation into the whereabouts of the remaining fake jellyfish is underway.

    据上周末杭州新闻报道,湖州市警方已经破获了一起假海蜇案件。
    4月22日,警方在一家农贸市场查获了超过150千克人造海蜇。三个嫌疑人从2015年6月份开始用海藻酸钠、氯化钙和硫酸铝制作假海蜇。到现在,他们已经赚了7万多元利润。
    其中一个人坦白他是从常州的一个贾师傅那儿学到的生意经。贾师傅和他的助理一年能生产10多吨假海蜇,利润高达100000元。剩余假海蜇的下落仍在调查之中。


【讲解】
    文中的fake jellyfish就是“假海蜇”的意思,其中jellyfish用作名词,意为“海蜇;水母”;在口语里,还可以表示“意志薄弱的人”,如:Her husband is a perfect jellyfish.(她丈夫是个典型的优柔寡断的人。)
    第三段中的whereabouts用作名词,表示“下落,所在之处”的意思,如:Whereabouts did you find it?(你在哪儿找到它的?)
