In other Malaga news, jellyfish summer for Spain’s Malaga. So far this summer jellyfish have not caused too trouble for Costa del Sol bathers, but over the last few days more and more jellyfish have headed into the area.
“We knew that this summer could be good for jellyfish, because in spring the conditions were perfect for their proliferation”, said Jess Bellido, biologist of the Aula del Mar. The biologist has highlighted that: “above average temperatures in the Alboran Sea, possibly, have made the breeding ground for these animals to reproduce”.
