Which meaning of the word "tame" is suitable in this context:

"My mother washed old plastic bags and hung them on the line to dry, a string of thrifty tame jellyfish floating in the sun".

Is it "domesticated" or "subdued" or "insipid"? I think it is "domesticated" but the writer use metaphor in this context so it's rather confusing to me.
