EXPERTS foresee the next focus of jellyfish on the Costa del Sol this summer season because of the currents of the Alboran Sea and a sequence of different circumstances, equivalent to the ocean temperature.

That stated, to this point this bathing season solely a handful of the gelatinous marine species have ended up dragged to the shoreline by the currents.

The alarming numbers registered final yr, nevertheless, occurred throughout July and August and consultants warn that this yr a jellyfish invasion to the Costa del Sol is greater than potential.

In response to Juan Antonio Lopez, biologist of the Aula del Mar, the wind final summer season was primarily the levante, which may produce gusts of 20-40 knots (10-20 m/s) blowing in an easterly path from the Mediterranean, and this precipitated the jellyfish which had been within the sea off the coast to finish up a lot nearer to the shore.

Lopez has forecast that this summer season the winds shall be of an analogous sample to final summer season, suggesting that the currents of the Alboran Sea and circumstances equivalent to the ocean temperature will as soon as once more favour a excessive presence of jellyfish within the space, particularly to the coast of Granada and Malaga.
