Jellies!

And they're back!!! The BBC - http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/5256652.stm - reports that the Mediterranean is on jellyfish alert. Huge swarms of the critters have invaded the coastal waters of some Spanish beaches, but  Sicily and North Africa are also reported to be badly affected. Meanwhile, the jellies are eating the sardines and herring. And in other pesty news, the cocoa pod borer moth was found in Asia, where 17% of the world's cocoa is produced. More at http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/business/5254410.stm

No, I'm not obsessed with jellies, but I seem to find the neatest articles on 'em in the science pages on the web :)
