Giant Jellyfish Found At Japan

A giant Jellyfish called Nomura's Jellyfish has been found recently at the Sea of Japan. Many were astonished due to its enormous size and thought that seeing jellyfish as big as that is something spectacular.

On the other hand, the inhabitants of the area think that this jellyfish is like a monster because it damages the nets of the fishermen, as well as, harm other sea creatures. The villagers are also afraid that big waves will result from any movement of this fish and may cause further damage to them.

The massive sea creatures, called Nomura's jellyfish, can grow 6 feet (1.83 meters) in diameter and weigh more than 450 pounds (204 kilos). Scientists think they originate in the Yellow Sea and in Chinese waters. For the third year since 2005, ocean currents are transporting them into the Sea of Japan.
