    Thank you CH for providing the [above] links. Very scientific! I've still not found anything online that remotely looks like these little bugs at/in the waters edge - but if I remember to 'get one' I'll take a pic. I know they are everywhere here, as Ive encountered them all along the coast. A minor inconvenience when they're around - I just got a bit concerned when my baby boy came out of the water with 4-5 red bite marks/spots, 2 of which were bleeding (very mildly).

    Turtles feed on jellyfish so if jellyfish increase it means maybe their predators the turtle are dying out/being killed

    I always came out in some welts/itchy rash after swimming in the sea. AsWrye sates its often sea lice and sometimes the odd drifting tentacle from a jellyfish

    With all the fishing nets extended out to sea on bamboo frameworks - Turtles are not going to stand a chance near the coast. I've not actually seen a Turtle whilst snorkelling recreationally from the shoreline anyway? Of course their environment is extremely fragile - so outside of sanctuaries with strictly enforced ecosystems (chuckle - .PH - strictly enforced? - chuckle) Turtles will be likely become extinct even during my lifetime... Sad.
