Looks like jellyfish are here to stay

According to Professor Alan Deidun, the increase in jellyfish noted last March shows no sign of abating.

Professor Deidun took to social media and posted a photograph of a large number of Pelagia Noctiluca seen today in Marsalforn.

Professor Deidun urged people not to swim in such jellyfish infested conditions, and, if stung, to use a mixture of sodium bicarbonate and sea water, not fresh water.

TVM can confirm that this week a sizeable amount of jellyfish were spotted in other bays in Malta and Gozo – particularly in Dwejra and Sliema.
