Jellyfish invade Japan

JAPAN (WFLX) - Giant jellyfish more than seven-feet in diameter are hurting Japan's fishing industry. The invertebrates are clogging fishing nets, poisoning and crushing the catch.

One fishing boat even capsized from the weight of the heavy jellyfish stuck in its fishing net. Experts estimate the outbreak of the jellyfish has brought a loss of $110 million.
