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
