All these factors may work in concert, synergically creating the conditions that will benefit jellyfish [33, 41, 42]. As is well known, jellyfish interfere directly with many human activities: specifically, through stings (beach closures, tourism impacts, injuries, deaths), clogging intakes (coastal power and desalination plants, shipping, aquaria), interfering with fishing (clogged and split nets, stung fishermen, damaged gear), aquaculture (fish deaths, pens fouled by polyps), and marine biological surveys (interfering with trawls) [37].

It is thought to be innocuous but contact can induce a burning sensation that lasts a few minutes. Instead, the toxicity of Chrysaora hysoscella [142, 143], Carybdea marsupialis [144] and Rhopilema nomadica [145, 38 D. Bonamonte et al. Fig. 22 Erythematovesico-bullous reaction to jellyfish Fig. 23 Figured atrophic and dyschromic outcome of reaction to jellyfish 146] has already been demonstrated. This last jellyfish arrived in the Mediterranean in the 1980s, coming from the Red Sea through the Suez Canal.

While the dose of venom depends on the number of nematocysts discharged, the speed of onset and the duration of symptoms will vary in each case according to the various factors that control the circulation span and the interval between the injection of venom and the onset of the symptoms. A further complication is that each harmful molecule attaches to the various receptor sites of the different organ systems, and this also takes some time before the reaction will lead on to manifest symptoms. This prompts two important considerations: the interval spectrum, or incubation time, before the disease becomes manifest will be fairly wide, and the duration and severity of the clinical pictures induced will be equally variable [80].
