Blooms of Fried Egg Jellyfish Spotted Along West Coast of Malta

 - Local - Sep 17 2023 SHARE ON:

Yesterday, an astonishing sight unfolded along the western coast of Malta and Gozo, as a crowd of Fried Egg Jellyfish was spotted in Zurrieq and Xlendi respectively.

The Fried Egg Jellyfish, AKA Phacellophora camtschatica, has a distinctive saucer-like shape and translucent appearance created a remarkable spectacle against the backdrop of the Mediterranean waters.

In a recent post on the ‘Jellyfish in Malta’ Facebook group, local marine biologist Alan Deidun emphasised the harmlessness of these jellyfish species and urged the public not to persecute them. This message came as part of the ongoing ‘spot the jellyfish’ citizen science campaign, which encourages individuals to report jellyfish sightings to aid in the understanding of their behaviour and distribution in Maltese waters.

The marine biologist extended gratitude to Edmond Schembri and Michael Zammit for their timely alerts, highlighting the importance of community involvement in preserving and studying these fascinating marine creatures.

As more people become aware of the peaceful nature of these jellyfish and engage in responsible observation, it not only enhances our understanding of marine ecosystems but also promotes a harmonious coexistence between humans and the sea.

Did you spot any jellyfish this summer?
