An Increase Of Jellyfish On Maine Beaches
If you are heading to the beach on this sunny, warm July weekend, you’ll have to find a parking spot, maybe pack a lunch, the sun block, the beach blanket, pick the perfect spot on the beach and you might want to keep your eyes open for jellyfish.
Marine researches say they are getting reports of jellyfish washed up on beaches along the Maine coast.
They’ve become more numerous in June when warmer water came into the region and have stuck around since then.
The small clear jellyfish in our area aren’t powerful enough to sting. The pinkish, purple larger jellyfish in the area can sting, however their sting is weaker than a bee’s sting.
