Tourists were warned on Friday against swimming in a bay off Koh Pha-ngan after many dangerous box jellyfishes have been sighted.


Sophon Thongdee, deputy director general of the Marine and Coastal Resources Department, said a letter had been sent to the Surat Thani governor to put warning signs at the Chalok Lar Bay.


The governor was also asked to have officials inform tourists of the danger of jellyfish at the spot.


Jatuporn Burutphat, director general of the department, said the jellyfish have been sighted since September 8 and their numbers appeared to have increased with 25 members of the Chironex indrasaksajiae species seen in the shallow bay.


Tourists were advised against swimming until further notice.

i think something like the System001 would be perfect to keep these buggers away from the beaches.


And it could also provide extra money because lately there is more and more research about how to use jellyfishes for common good, food or medicinal use.
