Jellyfish in Jersey
We are seeing lots of jellyfish around the coastline of Jersey this summer.
This is probably a result of the warmer sea temperature at the moment. Many bays in early August are reporting 19 degrees and aroudn the Oyster farms recordings of up to 30 degrees C has been recorded as the tide comes in.
Compass and blue Jellyfish seem to be the most frequent sightings. Often we are seeing them washed into small bays.
Here is a link to a useful chart showing some of the more common Jellyfish you are likely to find around Jersey.
