Jellyfish spotted in Gulf waters


Rayong – The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources (DMCR) says a recent survey has revealed a spread of jellyfish along the Eastern Gulf of Thailand’s coast, especially in Rayong province from Makham Pom Bay to Mae Phim Peninsula, Suan Son Beach, Phe village, Khao Laem Ya National Park and Mae Ramphueng Beach.

A large number of moon jellyfish were found in the area between Rayong Resort Pier and the pier of the Eastern Gulf of Thailand’s Fisheries Research and Development Center. The density is about 10 moon jellyfish per square meter. The moon jellyfish has a mild poison that only causes itching and irritation and is not considered a threat to life.
