11 tons of jellyfish collected along the Mediterranean coast

2018-06-20

Eleven tons of jellyfish have been collected from beaches on the Costa del Sol after the biggest invasion of jellyfish since 2012. It reports Diario SUR on Tuesday. During the weekend, beaches were covered between Mijas to Torrox / Nerja by Pelagia Noctiluca or light-emitters as it is called in Swedish.

Even on the Costa Tropical between Almuñécar and Motril / Calahonda the beaches were filled. It is not abnormal that large quantities of jellyfish are flushed on land during spring and summer. Should it happen in the summer and during a weekend, the event is more noticeable because the beaches are filled with bathers.

In recent days, the quitanatas boats that guard and clean the coasts of the coast have been working for high pressure. Between Nerja and Vélez-Málaga, eight tonnes of light manners have been raised. Between Torremolinos and Mijas, it is about three tons, most of which are along Benalmádena Costa.

According to Aula del Mar, it is the biggest invasion of jellyfish since 2012. Even in 2015 there were large amounts.

Biologist Jesús Bellido at Aula del Mar says that the presence of jellyfish is still high throughout much of the Málaga coast. He calls for madness among bathers.
