“So since the 1980s we can see jellyfish come to our shores in greater numbers. Every year because of global warming, the water temperature is increasing and you can see more and more jellyfish. They come from the Red Sea into the Mediterranean, and they are doing real damage here.

This problem is also a problem in the Suez Canal, a 150-year-old Egyptian man-made canal that allowed invasive species to travel from the Red Sea to the Mediterranean, where there are now 17 species of jellyfish, most of them non-venomous.

Fertilizer spills off the coast are also used as food for jellyfish.
