Blue button jellyfish washes ashore South Goa beaches

12th May, 2017: Drishti lifeguards spotted a cluster of Porpita porpita, a marine organism commonly known as blue button jellyfish, which washed up on shore at various locations along the Benaulim to Mobor and Betul to Palolem coast over the last three days. The blue button jellyfish which were washed ashore are approximately 1.5 inches wide or less and are seen twice every year. Typically found in the tropical and sub-tropical waters of Pacific, Atlantic and Indian Oceans, the blue button jellyfish looks similar to the jellyfish. Although, its sting is not very powerful, it can cause irritation to human skin. So, if you are on the beach, try not to let curiosity take over and avoid getting in contact with the mysterious looking blue buttons.
