Photographers who perpetuate the appearance of thousands of animals, Charlotte Lawson (24) m said that the jellyfish that washed blue it looks like plastic bubbles along the coast. "This phenomenon occurs every year, but never this much, this year there is accumulation," Lawson said, as quoted by the Daily Mail, Friday (02/03/2017).
Local media proclaim, this phenomenon is known as a bloom. In line with the statement Lawson, marine biologist, Dr Lisa-Ann Gershwin, said that the scenery in Deception Bay is the largest bloom phenomenon he had ever seen.
"Bloom in jellyfish is a part of their life cycle, and if the wind is blowing right and if the water level decreases with the tide, at which time they were stranded. We (often) see the bloom of jellyfish but never like this. It was very surprising, "said Gershwin.
Although it looks alarming, blue jellyfish usually do not cause serious injury to humans. Gershwin said, this jellyfish is an animal that is commonly seen in the southeastern region of Queensland, New South Wales and Victoria.
