On the coast of Ireland discovered the killer jellyfish

October 10 2008

On the northern coast of Ireland there were hordes of pink and purple jellyfish, which are very common in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. These individuals represent a great danger to farms for breeding fish.

A huge number of jellyfish wiped out on a farm for growing trout in County Antrim fishing all the fish at a depth of 10 meters. Damage estimated at more than 1 million pounds sterling.
Experts still do not know what to think. Perhaps it is the invasion of coelenterates animals, or they simply drifted here by the winds. Usually, jellyfish can be found in warm waters hundreds of miles from shore, but experts think that because of global warming jellyfish habitat areas are spreading.
Residents of the coastal strip is recommended not to approach a jellyfish. These creatures mushroom-shaped tentacles armed with stinging cells, which contain a capsule of poison. They are a danger to humans. Contact can be very painful.
