JELLYFISH in the Italian Mediterranean--Predictions?

Jump to last reply

I have several Italian coastal destinations (and at least one in Spain) on my list for the hopefully not-too-distant future. (MY next trip will be to Puglia, in September)

But it occurred to me, after reading a recent and excellent report on the Aeolian Islands and Taormina (thank you, Aprillilacs) , that anyone headed for these coasts, and planning to swim in the sea, needs to be aware of the persistent jellyfish problem that has plagued these waters in the recent past.

I would hate, for example, to plan a week in the Cilento based around swimming, walking, and eating, to have to confront hordes of these horrid creatures on my first offshore jaunt.

So: Does anyone know what we can expect for summer 2010, and if there are any areas of the coast that are particularly hard-hit each year? Or is it totally random and dependent on water temperature and other weather conditions? Are they usually gone by September? Are there any jellyfish-free zones? (I know that they cannot read the signs, even if they are posted in Italian)
