Blue jellyfish warning to beachgoers

News | Published:

BEACHGOERS are being warned not to touch jellyfish that could soon wash up on the Island's shores.

Last week a Guernsey government department stated that Blue jellyfish, also known as Cyanea lamarkii, had been seen off the island's west coast.

The creatures are known to carry a mild sting and are said to arrive in the Island after a prolonged period of westerly winds.

Francis Binney, the chairman of the marine biology section at the Société Jersiaise, warned Islanders against touching the jellyfish.
