I only need three points but I could end up not making a shot,” he said laughing. “When you’re close to something, that’s when it gets hard.

first_imgTHE OWNERS of a Co Donegal fish farm have lost 20,000 salmon to a plague of killer jellyfish.Marine Harvest, which operates in Mulroy Bay, lost the fish in a kill off the Co Mayo coast.The firm opted for an accelerated harvest at its Donegal aquaculture farm in order to minimize losses on its farmed stock, it said. Scientists connect the the jellyfish invasion to warmer sea waters. The mauve stinger (Pelagia noctiluca) has killed salmon before off our coasts.It is a phenomenon that has also been observed in other parts of the world.Marine Harvest has been taking preventive measures such as giving its salmon less fish feed to keep them less active with gills covers closed as it worries about strandings of this jellyfish species from Donegal to Kerry.  DONEGAL FISH FARM OWNERS LOSE 20,000 SALMON TO KILLER JELLYFISH was last modified: October 23rd, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:000 SALMON TO KILLER JELLYFISHDONEGAL FISH FARM OWNERS LOSE 20jellyfishMarine Harvestthe mauve stinger (Pelagia noctiluca)last_img read more
