The big amount of moon jellies (Aurelia aurita) has appeared in Dubai beach. The same irruption was seen in the emirate in 2008. Usually jellyfishes appear in the shores of Persian Gulf in the period from April until May and from September until October. However, for the last 6 years they were unusual occurrence. The scientists connect this migration of moon jellies to the climate changes.
You can meet jellyfishes inshore or at depth. In case of touching the human's body, they can sting what will cause itch, skin redness, and burn.
