Jellyfish

June 16, 2011 by No Comments | Category Marine Scotland Science

Occasional jellyfish were spotted during sampling this week reminding us that they will be getting more and more abundant as the water warms over the summer (see photo of lots of jellyfish in the sea near Stonehaven last year). Some reports suggest a global increase in the abundance of jellyfish. The EU funded project EcoJel is currently assessing detrimental impacts of jellyfish in the Irish Sea.
