Irukandji jellyfish

« on: September 18 2007 18:09:00 »

Does anyone know how far the current outbreak of the deadly Irukandji jellyfish is going outside of Indonesia and North Australia ?? I know they have spread to the Caroline Islands, but I am wondering if they have been spotted in Fiji or Hawaii. Can any surf camps or surfers out there give us a post or an update ??

The reason I am posting this question is that I think this topic has been overlooked in the surfing media -- and I am looking for help in educating all surfers out there [including myself] on these lethal jellyfish -- and we should track any movements of them toward Hawaii, the coast of Mexico and Central America etc. There are major jellyfish outbreaks now do to increased wastes from sewage and commercial fishing.

Driftnets cause jellies to break up and to spread even more rapidly. It has become a threat to the fishing industries in the far East. Please post replies.

Sorry to say, but because of GLUTTONS that we are in the U.S., globally warming temperatures make jellyfish presence and invertebrate domination inevitable; sucks for surfers and marine mammals, but, maybe some sea turtles will benefit!
