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 make a bump box from scratch

In the past year, we’ve seen the rise of a whole new type of product — the bump box.

Here’s how to make one from scratch.


Get the materials, and make a mold for your product.

If you want to make your own bump box, this is the place to start.

You’ll need a sturdy cardboard box, cardboard mold, and some screws.

You can use any type of cardboard box or mold, but make sure the cardboard is thick enough to fit inside.

Mold it yourself.

You won’t need to worry about any molding, but it’s a good idea to buy some basic supplies.2.

Cut out the box.

To make a box, you’ll need to cut out some pieces of cardboard.

Make sure you’re cutting them to the correct size for your mold, so they won’t stretch too far.

This is important because the cardboard will have to stretch in order to fit through the mold hole.

If you cut too far, it’ll make the mold bigger, which will stretch out the cardboard.3.

Drill holes in the box and glue.

Cut out the pieces of the box you’ll be using to make the bump boxes.

Drill two holes in it.

Then, glue them together.4.

Cut and glue the cardboard mold.

Put the cardboard in a plastic bag and place it in a cabinet or other sturdy object.

Next, you can put a piece of duct tape over the cardboard to keep it from flying off.

Then put it in the mold, where it will be moulded.

The mould will expand as the mold is in the middle of the cardboard, so make sure to cut the pieces out of the mold as well as glue them to it.5.

Place the mold in the cardboard box.

If it’s too small, put a layer of duct to hold it in place.

If you’re using a mold, place it inside a small plastic bag to keep your mold from sliding around.


Attach your mould to the cardboard and make the box taller.

Attach the box to the wall by putting duct tape on top.

Place a screw on top of the screw and glue it.

Then attach the box back to the box by using duct tape and glue on top again.

The box will have enough room to stretch out to fit.7.

Attached to the mold are the screws that hold the box together.

You can attach the screws to the sides of the mould by attaching the screws on top and the bottom.

You may also attach the screw to the top of a piece that’s sticking out of a wall.8.

Attaching the screws can be tricky, so be sure to tape them to your wall before you attach them.


Now it’s time to put the box on the shelf.

Lay out the piece of cardboard inside the mold.

Put a piece on top, and attach the mold to it by attaching it to the shelf with the screws.


Once you’re happy with the size of your bump box (you may want to add a bit more padding if the box is going to be bigger), you can start attaching the bumpers to the inside of the boxes.


When you’re done attaching the bumps, glue the bumper onto the cardboard as shown.

You want to glue the bumps to the back of the plastic mold.
