Warmer Waters Expected to Bring More Jellyfish Once Again to the Beaches this Summer

Authorities are warning beachgoers that a jellyfish warning will be issued next month as the water temperature is expected to be higher than normal in the summer months.

The increased temperatures in the ocean water are seemingly the cause of increased jellyfish activities in the coastal waters of Busan as the marine creatures are directed towards the shallow waters due to ocean currents from the East and the South China Sea.

Due to the record-setting heatwave in Busan city last summer, while fewer people visited the beaches in the port city than usual, more fell victim to jellyfish stings.

The Busan fire authorities received 134 cases of jellyfish stings at the seven local beaches — which are double from 2017’s 67 cases.
