Interesting Fact # 691 – Salmon vs Jellyfish

Jellyfish 1 – Salmon 0.

(A mass of poisonous jellyfish devastated stocks of organic farmed salmon off the coast of Northern Ireland. Millions of purplish pelagia noctiluca, or mauve stingers, covered 10 miles square and 35 feet deep, they drifted over cages of salmon in Glenarm Bay and stung to death about 120,000 fish. Estimated damage to the organic farm was over £1 million. The jellyfish wiped out the company’s mature harvest a month before Christmas, so, I hope you’ve already got some in the freezer.)
