What? Blue sand? Nope! These are thousands of blue jellyfish covering several beaches of Barcelona and along the Catalan coast.
The jellyfish started appearing last Saturday, coloring the sand and coastal water in blue in Barcelona, Badalona, Sitges, Vendrell, Montgat and Tarragona. This type of jellyfish isn’t dangerous for humans, so people can continue bathing… But it’s quite a bit disgusting!

A few weeks ago, another major stranding occurred along the beaches of the Costa Brava after a week of strong waves and abundant rainfall in Catalonia.
Meanwhile a giant sunfish – 3 meters by 2.8 meters – was discovered dead on a beach near Pareora, south of Timaru last Friday when they found the massive.

No one is bringing up the amount of radiation spewing into the Pacific Ocean as a result of Fukushima , March 11, 2011. That’s over seven years of radioactive poison contaminating the ocean. The ocean currents bring this disaster to different places around the globe. Could it be that this is affecting the marine life from the smallest to the largest?
Yes maybe, these jellyfish can swim over thousands of kilometers!
