Back on July 20, 2006 the 3Yen reported about the INVASION OF THE NUCLEAR JELLYFISH! Well now the problem has intensified as The DEEP ONES* attack!!

Millions of jellyfish invade nuclear reactors in Japan and Israel (photos)

A nuclear reactor in Japan was forced to shut down due to infiltration of enormous swarms of jellyfish near the power plant. A similar incident was also reported recently in Israel when millions of jellyfish clogged down the sea-water cooling system of the power plant. Such massive invasions of the species have raised speculations and scientists are trying to figure out the reason behind such unusual growing trendsmore

  1. The Deep Ones are planning their attack on the world…..


    Are giant jellyfish evolving to take over the seas? | Sept. 15, 2011
    With fish numbers all over the world falling thanks to overfishing and habitat destruction, a surprising predator has sprung up to take their place — the jellyfish. Due to their low energy requirements, the floating blobs of stingers don’t need to be quite as active or accurate to spread and fill the ecological niche afforded them by changes in the ecosystem.
    Even more curiously, the jellyfish appear to be adapting to be better hunters, too. An active predator fish has to spot prey and chase after it, but the Medusozoa just passively wait for their prey to come into contact with their poison stingers. So jellyfish are evolving into larger and even slower moving organisms, able to cover more area with their tendrils while still needing only small amounts of energy to survive.

  2. JEDI alliance: Jellyfish overlords won't rule Earth after all
    The Register | 2nd February 2012
    The worldwide jellyfish-threat trouser state was officially downgraded …Despite the (cough) well-publicised menace posed by such things as the fridge-sized, quarter-ton monster jellies which routinely choke the Sea of Japan… it seems that in fact there’s not great need to panic.
    International boffins, allied under the banner Jellyfish Database Initiative (JEDI) have collated all available data on jelly populations worldwide. They say that in fact, regardless of the various wobbling menaces highlighted in the more irresponsible sections of the media, there’s nothing to show an overall increase in jellyfish population.
    “Clearly, there are areas where jellyfish have increased, the situation with the Giant Jellyfish in Japan is a classic example,” says Dr Cathy Lucas of Blighty's National Oceanography Centre, one of the JEDI alliance. “But there are also areas where jellyfish have decreased, or fluctuate over the decadal periods.”
