"The skipper should be the calmest person on board.
It is good for the morale of those around you. However, if everyone around you is frightened then be aware of the possibility that they know something you donít."

Re: Giant Jellyfish Found On Tasmanian Beach

"We're very keen to find out why jellyfish are blooming in such super-abundances in these southern waters," she said.

It seems Jellyfish is being on the rise in many places including the med. Now when I dive from the boat I look first if there are Jellyfish around and many times they are there.

Some years ago I sailed a sea of Jellyfish. I was not paying attention or looking at the sea and suddenly a weird sound called my immediate attention: Blop..Blop..Blop...Blop..Blop...Yes you get it, I was sailing on a jellyfish sea. Near the boat and around you cannot see water, just jellyfish. Freaking frightening
