Attack of the 400-pound jellyfish!

Giant jellyfish are impacting Japan's fishing industry this summer...

A massive swarm of monster jellyfish that reach six feet in diameter and weigh well over 400 pounds threatened Japan's fishing industry this summer. At press time, Japan's Fisheries Agency began warning in July of a "jellyfish typhoon" poised to hit the region from what amounts to a huge year-class of the Nomura's jellies. In addition to the heavy jellyfish damaging nets and degrading catches in those nets, fishermen may have to deal with painful stings.
