Box jellyfish found on Melbourne beach

Posted May 02, 2019 08:30:46The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMPSA) has confirmed a box jellyfish washed up on the Sydney Harbour in the last week has been found on a beach in the city.

Key points:The box jellyfishes was identified as an invasion of the blue marbled jellyfish species from the Northern TerritoryThis is the first time the jellyfish has been identified in the area since it was first reported in 2015The box, which was first spotted by fisherman John Seddon, is a male and it is believed to be about 40 centimetres in length.

It has been washed up along the beaches of Swanston Street and Dickson Street, in the Sydney CBD.

“It’s a blue marbles jellyfish and we have been in contact with the NSW Government and they’ve been working with us to make sure we have a plan in place for how we deal with it,” AMA spokesman David Smith said.

“Unfortunately this is the very first time we’ve seen this species on Sydney Harbour, so there’s a lot of work to be done to make it as difficult as possible for this jellyfish to be a problem for us.”

The jellyfish is believed not to have crossed the Tasman, however Mr Smith said it was likely to have been introduced from the northern territory, which is believed as a major food source for the jellyfishing.

Mr Smith said the jelly fish was found by the fishing boats of John Suddons son and a resident of the area.

“There’s no evidence of any activity on the water at this time,” he said.

The AMSA said they were not sure if the box jelly was a direct invasion of any species or if it was a new species introduced to the area from the Tasman.

“We’ll be able to look into it at some point, but we have no indication at this stage that it’s any of the other species that have been identified on Sydney beaches in the past,” Mr Smith added.

“The AMAS has not identified any other species of jellyfish in the region.”

How to build a box jellyfish to collect jellyfish in Israel

A kit with instructions for making a box with a lid, a handle and a window has become the most popular jellyfish collector in Israel.

The Israeli toy company Kotobalt Toolbox recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for the box and it has already sold more than 2,200 of them.

The company’s product is called the Kubalt toolbox.

It has been featured in Israeli magazines and online, but there is no word yet on how many people have purchased it so far.

The Kubalt box measures around 10 centimeters long and is made from a polypropylene sheet.

It is covered with a plastic casing and measures about 2 centimeters wide.

The box includes a lid that can be opened and closed by pushing a button, a toolbox that can also be used to pick up jellyfish and an insert for collecting jellyfish.

The kit includes instructions on how to make a box that can accommodate jellyfish for collection.

It is made of a single piece of polypropane, which is easy to clean.

The product comes in two versions: a regular box and a large box.

The regular box is available in colors of blue, green and red, and has an attached container that can hold a number of different jellyfish or other objects.

The larger box has two holes in the top of it, making it ideal for collecting other objects such as eggs, fish or even plants.

The Kickstarter campaign has raised nearly $30,000 so far, which includes $3,000 from a user in Israel who purchased the kit.

The project is one of a number that have been launched in Israel aimed at promoting and funding products that can help children grow their minds and help them learn about science.
