An innovative smart phone application, which gives users up-to-date information on facilities found on most bathing areas in the Maltese Islands, weather forecast for the same beaches and on the risk of jellyfish occurrence on the same beaches, has been recently launched jointly by the IOI-MOC at the University of Malta and the Malta Tourism Authority (MTA).

The application being launched was developed within the MED-JELLYRISK project, also draws on the support from the local jellyfish spotting campaign – Spot the Jellyfish – with the jellyfish forecast provided by the same application being possible as a result of data being submitted to this 5-year-long local campaign. The development of the application was jointly coordinated by staff at the IOI-MOC of the University of Malta, including Dr. Alan Deidun, and by Alert Communications. 

The fully functional MED-JELLY application is available for download both on the Android platform and on the iPhone platform (download it now for Android and for iPhone). 

A waterproof booklet with detailed sting treatment information for different jellyfish species, also produced within the MED-JELLYRISK project, will be distributed on all local beaches in the coming summer months and a jellyfish photography competition is also being launched. For more information on the application and the competition please visit the project website.
