Ship sank by jellyfish

jellyNow that is crazy.  A 10 ton Japanese fishing trawler was sank by dozens of Nomura's jellyfish.  I had no idea that jellyfish could grow to such a scale.  They can reach 440 pounds and be up to 6.5 feet across.

Experts believe weather and water conditions in the breeding grounds, off the coast of China, have been ideal for the jellyfish in recent months.
