6 The Bay Invaded by Jellyfish

The Bay Invaded by Jellyfish

Posted on February 23, 2016 by team


Such a phenomenon can be seen each year in the bay of Balaklava under Sevastopol: all its water area gets filled with jellyfish.

Boats, ships, expensive yachts stand in the white jelly mess squishing under the feet of people walking by.

According to scientists this phenomenon occurs due to wind currents and population inflow - jellyfish accumulates in the water area of the Balaklava bay like in a sack.

Another side factor is high temperature of both the air (to +20C) and the water (to +14C) in this period.

    Saw that in 2003 when I visited free Crimea. Even had a bath in the sea, among the jellyfishes. But there were much less than that !

      “Alain”, again, you forget to ask the Crimeans their opinion. Perhaps your ‘opinion’ is more important. All in the the name of your adgenda.

    Is there any logical reason as to why all these images couldn’t be posted on one single page? Having to click through two images at a time is extremely annoying. I just can’t be bothered. Sorry.

    Is there any logical reason as to why all these images couldn’t be posted on 2 or 3 pages? Having to click through two images at a time per page is extremely annoying. I just can’t be bothered. Sorry, you’ll be losing viewers if this continues.

    It is pretty simple – money from advertisement. But you can buy a year subscription and everything will be on one page. I think it was around 2 $/year.

    Better being invaded by jellyfish than that unholy NATO-neo-Nazi government in Kiev.
