September 22, 2011 - A comparable incident was also documented lately in Israel when millions of jellyfish clogged down the sea-drinking water cooling system of a power plant.

These kinds of huge invasions of the species have scientists are attempting to determine out the reason behind such uncommon increasing tendencies.

They undoubtedly could be coincidental," Monty Graham, a jellyfish biologist and senior marine scientist at the Dauphin Island Sea Lab off the Gulf Coast of Alabama stating, informed LiveScience.
