Jelly Fish Blooms Reported in Mediterranean Coastal Waters

The officials at the UK Foreign Office have issued warning after upsurge in number of jellyfish was reported in the Mediterranean coastal waters for France and Italy.

Along with the warnings, the office has also updated the travel advice for Greece. However, the marine biologists have suggested that the bloom this year is just same as that occurs in previous years. Also, they affirmed that the species were non-stinging.

It is learnt that the concerned officials are taking a closer look into the situation. Talking to BBC, a spokesperson for the office said that they have been alerted about the large number of jellyfish in Mediterranean.

Further, she asserted that the upsurge has been noted in main holiday destinations of the UK. The officials are trying to keep the visitors informed about the same. But the project co-ordinator of the Mediterranean JellyRisk programme, Stefano Piraino said that there is no need to making the tourists concerned.

He averred that these non-stinging jellyfish are full of antioxidants and can be eaten. Also, molecules from them can be used in medicines, he added.

"We are overfishing the oceans, which means we are catching all the big fish so the fish population is being reduced and we eliminate competitors and leave more food for the jellyfish", said Prof. Piraino, explaining the reason behind increase in the number.
