To the untrained eye, they are gelatinous blobs, drifting aimlessly on the ocean's currents. But jellyfish are among the most-feared and least-understood creatures on earth. Big enough to sink fishing boats, the Giant Nomura Jellyfish can grow to over 2m wide and weigh up to 200kg. Rising sea temperatures have lead to massive increases in the Nomura population and swarms that previously amassed only once every four decades now strike Japan's shores yearly, wreaking havoc on coastal towns, fishing communities and cities.
