Massive jellyfish carpet spotted at Golden Bay seabed

Local marine biologist Alan Deaden took to Facebook to share photos of what he called jellyfish carpets on the seabed at Golden Bay. 

The jellyfish covered marine landscape on the north-west coast of the Maltese islands forms part of the ‘ongoing swarm of mauve stingers laid during the calm weather experienced last December’, explained Deidun. 

Images show a purple-blue carpet stretching over vast distances beneath the waves. It is unclear whether this pattern will continue until this upcoming summer, with Deidun himself working to create more awareness about the marine fauna and how to deal with them given some of their species’ stings. 

Late last year and earlier this year, Deidun shared images of jellyfish populating the bays of the islands following the calm weather which befell Malta and Gozo.

The President of the European Parliament Roberta Metsola is in Lviv, Ukraine. This is the Maltese’s second visit to the country, after being the first leader of an EU institution to visit Kyiv since the war started just over a year ago. This visit takes place less than a month after President Metsola welcomed President Zelenskyy at the European Parliament in Brussels.

During her visit, President Metsola met with the President of Ukraine, Volodymyr Zelenskyy. During the meeting, President Metsola said, “I am hopeful that all the conditions will be met for negotiations to start as soon as possible, even by the end of the year. Ukraine’s future is in the European Union.” President Metsola added, “the pace with which the Verkhovna Rada and the Government is making progress on the EU application impresses me”. Later on, the two leaders addressed Ukrainian students at Ivan Franko National University in Lviv.

Earlier during her visit, President Metsola was greeted by the Verkhovna Rada Speaker Ruslan Stefanchuk, with whom she also participated in a Wreath-Laying Ceremony at the ‘Memorial to Fallen Soldiers’, at the Lychakiv Cemetery. “Emotional moment today as I laid flowers on behalf of the people of Europe to remember all those killed – including Yuriy Ruf, who was killed by Russian mortars on 1 April. It was especially poignant for me as that was the day I first visited Ukraine. We will remember them,” she stated.
