《中英對照讀新聞》Jellyfish As Big As Sumo Wrestlers Hit Japan 大如相撲力士的水母襲擊日本
An invasion of jellyfish the size of sumo wrestlers is throwing the Japanese fishing industry into jeopardy.
The vast creatures have appeared on Japan’s Pacific coast after floating from Chinese and Korean waters where they breed every year.
The Echizen jellyfish grow up to 2.2m in diameter and can weigh over 300kg. Their size means they are capable of ruining fisherman’s nets and poisoning and crushing catches.
One fishing boat was even capsized after a mammoth creature got caught in its net. A local fisherman said： " I have never seen anything this big before."
Much about the jellyfish swarms remains a mystery but some scientists believe global warming and rising sea temperatures may be a factor. Japan’s Meteorological Agency says the waters of the Sea of Japan are warming at a speed three times faster than the global average.
