Giant Jellyfish Invade Japan's Waters (10 pics)

By on Thursday, December 27, 2012

Nomura - A giant ocean jellyfish over two meters in diameter and weighing up to 300 pounds, has again attacked the coast of Japan. Such invasions of invertebrates have before deeply damaged the fishing industry of the country. The jellyfish not only damage the fishing networks, they also ruin the fish themselves by striking them with their poisonous tentacles and making the fish inedible. Many cooperatives have suspended commercial fishing.


  1. Good apetite, dear Japanese friends. You ate all dolphins, now you have nice jellyfish on menu. Regards from Croatia!
