If it is the same type

 Seen a few doco's on these jelly fish

 

they have wiped out whole communities of fishing towns in japan and other asian countries.

there is no known cure or predator and they use a super sized sive / grinder aboard a boat to grind them up and kill them off.

 

only problem with that is that it dumps millions of eggs into the ocean and they just reform into bigger numbers.

and they are believed to be poisonous and they have wiped out all of the major local fish stocks.

they are attracted to warmer currents and I really hope that if it is the same type of jelly fish then if it manages to totally invade each state of Australia them god help us!! We will all be freshwater trout and bream fishing at best!!
