Salmon Farm Attacked By Plague of Jellyfish – Shortage Expected

November 23, 2007 | By More


Expect a severe shortage in Irish salmon in the months to come, if any at all. The reason, an unprecedented jelly fish attack.

The Northern Salmon Co. Ltd. reports that over 100,000 fish were destroyed in an attack by billions of small mauve stingers (jellyfish) as they flooded the cages where the fish were kept.

The attack caused over £1 million in damages and leaves the future of the company in doubt.

The jellyfish responsible, the mauve stingers are noted for their purplish nighttime glow and are native to the warmer Mediterranean Sea. Only recently have they been spotted in British waters, scientists cite this migration north as evidence of global warming.
