Jellyfish
Originally uploaded by neil_barman


Imagine 10 square miles, 35 feet deep, consisting of billions of jellyfish "attacking" (or coming into contact with?) caged salmon.


"Jellyfish wiped out Northern Ireland's only salmon farm, with more than 1 million pounds' ($2.06 million) worth of stock massacred in the attack.

(read article) (and another)
