Dear sea loving people/ marine enthusiasts,
In recent years, there is an increase in jellyfish blooms in the Mediterranean and Black Sea due to the changes in climate and food chains.
Furthermore, new alien jellyfishes, like "Lessepsian species" that entered to our seas via the Suez Canal, cause serious problems in the Eastern Mediterranean Basin. This jellyfishes and gelatinous organisms clog fishing nets and damage our fisheries. On the other hand, some venomous species may cause nuisance to bathers and especially they may become a real health hazard for babies and elderly individuals.
