The Mediterranean Sea is often considered a vacationer’s paradise. Warm seas and sandy beaches line the northern coast, and countries like Italy and Greece depend on tourism for economic development. The growing presence of stinging jellyfish in those perfect swimming waters is, then, a cause of great concern. Some beach towns have had to limit swimming to prevent vacationers from encountering the dangerous, stinging jellyfish, yet experts estimate 150,000 people are treated for jellyfish stings each year in towns around the Mediterranean. Some experts blame overfishing for an increase in jellyfish numbers, while others credit warming oceans.
