Torrox takes on the jellyfish menace and provides first aid for stings

NOT all visitors will be welcomed on the Torrox coast this summer, as the council launches an anti-jellyfish crackdown.
A collaboration agreement between the town council and the Civil Protection team is expected to reduce the number jellyfish coming into the sea along the town’s coast, as well as provide help for bathers who have been stung, making a swimming a more relaxing experience.
“A motorboat will scour the area and identify the different species when found,” said Tourism councillor, Sandra Extremera. “Experts will treat stings and catalogue the area and time when they occur, filling a report to the public institution in charge to determine patterns.”
Ms Extremera stressed that the council would continue to implement all measures designed to make the coasts more enjoyable for tourists and visitors alike.
