Pictures taken over the weekend showed the blue blubber jellyfish (Catostylus mosaicus) covering the sand and they were shared by a number of people on the social media.

The animals were not really invading and actually appeared as a result of a natural phenomenon known as a bloom.

‘Jellyfish bloom is part of their lifecycle and if the winds blow just right and if the water level falls with the tide, then they get stranded,’ Dr Lisa-Ann Gershwin, a marine biologist, said.

The bloom usually lasts a week before the tide comes in and takes the animals back into the water.
