Jellyfish blooms have taken over many popular areas that are used for both fishing and tourism. The increases in population have been destroying fisheries, and affecting fishermen’s catches. Jellyfish have caused hundreds of millions of dollars in damage. The blooms are also negatively affecting tourism because of the heightened population of jellyfish in the area.
Infographics are a great way to educate the public. It gives the reader both the knowledge needed to protect themselves, as well as illustrations to maintain interest and connect the readings with visuals. An infographics poster will educate the public about the links between climate change, overfishing and plankton growth with the expanding population of jellyfish.
