Jellyfish were located along the eastern and southeastern coasts of Mauritius.
 
Already two weeks, fishermen from Trou d'Eau Douce and Palmar in the east of the island, had alerted authorities of the presence of jellyfish.
 
Due to bad weather raging during the austral winter, jellyfish are carried by warm currents derived towards from the Mauritian coast.

According to preliminary findings at sea, the species found off the island of Mauritius would be particularly dangerous for swimmers if they were to adventure in the lagoons of the island.

Jellyfish stings cause severe itching, skin irritation and sometimes vomiting and intestinal pain.
