A huge swarm of jellyfish was seen in the Bay of Haifa off of Israel’s northern coastline, Israel’s Nature and Parks Authority stated on Wednesday.

The massive swarm was first spotted by Israel Nature and Parks Authority (INPA) Director-General Raya Shuraki and the agency’s Marine Enforcement Unit.

According to the INPA, the jellyfish population is exploding due to human behavior. “Many things humans are doing contribute to the propagation of jellyfish, including the digging of the Suez Canal, pollution from sewage, climate change, and harming jellyfish predators, such as sunfish and sea turtles,” an INPA statement said.

  1. Let them know there is something called fishing nets, when there is too much fish, catch them with a net and walla they are gone. Send them to japan to be eaten

  2. Its alwaya in the three weeks, and 2 days after Tisha B’AV u can see them washed up on the shore. Whenever it falls in the English calendar, it follows the hebrew. Verified by secular lifeguards when i got bitten up in the 3 weeks
