The invasion of swarms of jellyfish on the beaches of Spain has surfaced again and has affected the tourism industry. These jellyfish had resulted in problems for more than 1000 holidaymakers in Costa Del Solon July and have returned once again.
In July, the people had to be treated for injuries like painful stings arising from coming in contact with these creatures of the seas.
This has been reported in dailymail.co.uk of dated 4th of August 2012.
The lifeguards have closed down many beaches along the Malaga coast of southern Spain.
The jellyfish are of the Pelagia noctiluca variety and are commonly known as the 'mauve stinger'.
They are small purplish bell shaped creatures and are capable of delivering painful stings through tentacles which can reach three metres (nearly 10-feet) in length.
One reason for this sudden invasion is the deprivation of their usual diets like turtles, tuna and swordfish.
