I have seen the water so thick with jelly fish over here in the summer, only about a quarter of a mile off, that no wonder it attracts jelly fish eaters. Usually the sun fish, turtles etc that come up on the gulf stream end up perishing as the water cools down. Sad but true.
Incidentally if you spot a stranded live turtle or one in the shallows, don't leave it, get it to a sea life centre or seal sanctuary etc as they are doomed once they end up on our shores & die soon after. I think I'm correct in saying that.
Simon Clapham knows a bit more about this, only because I have seen a photograph of him in a Ninja Turtle outfit :wink:

Simon share your experience with us

Used to see a few in St Ouen's Bay in warmer summers.

Saw a belter off Greve de Lecq pier one summer which caught my line over a fin and did a massive screaming run against the ratchet. An old Irish tourist on the pier saw the fin and started shouting "shark, shark" and swearing like mad. One too many in the Stable Bar I think.

They certainly are beautiful in their own very weird way.
