Stinger sea­son be­gins

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

STINGER sea­son has of­fi­cially started, af­ter a large box jel­ly­fish was caught at Port Dou­glas late last week. Surf life­savers caught a Chi­rop­salmus Quadru­manu, which is the least lethal of the two ma­jor box jel­ly­fish.

As a pre­cau­tion, Surf Life Sav­ing Queens­land has asked swimmers to stay in­side the stinger nets on Four Mile and be aware to swim where life­guards can see them, and if there are no nets or life­guards on re­mote beaches, to wear stinger suits.
