Forecast possible for Irukandji box jellyfish blooms

Irukandji box jellyfishThe sudden arrival of huge blooms of box jellyfish can now be predicted, a study suggests.
Researchers from Australia say that monitoring changes in ocean winds can help to establish where and when Irukandji jellyfish will strike.
Lead author Lisa-Ann Gershwin said: "They travel in very, very large numbers. It's not uncommon to have dozens of stings on a beach in a day.
"The jellyfish bodies and tentacles are invisible in water - it's like a diamond dropped into a glass of water - you just can't see them."
