How to Keep Swimmers Safe During Jellyfish Swarms

Summer is upon us and we all know what that means – days spent lazing around on the beach, soaking up some sun and playing in the water. While the beach provides us with the perfect platform to enjoy our summer activities, it also comes with its own set of challenges, like the annual jellyfish invasion.

With their painful stings, these creatures can really put a damper on your beach experience, but there’s an easy solution – jellyfish nets to keep people safe. In this blog post, we’ll be discussing the benefits of using jellyfish nets and how they can help protect swimmers during jellyfish swarms.

The Benefits of Using Jellyfish Nets Explained

Jellyfish swarms are a common occurrence during the summer months, and they can put a real damper on your beach experience. These poisonous creatures often make their way close to shore, making them a serious threat to swimmers. But have no fear – jellyfish nets have come to the rescue. Our custom-made nets are designed to keep jellyfish at bay, protecting swimmers and allowing them to enjoy their time in the water without fear.

A hassle-free solution to a potentially dangerous problem

Jellyfish nets are particularly useful for hotels with beaches and local governments with public beaches. These areas can protect swimmers by providing netted bathing areas. We manufacture custom-made jellyfish nets to protect swimmers from jellyfish within a confined area. These nets are made for each project and designed for quick and easy maintenance, repositioning, re-installation, or removal.

The nets serve a dual purpose

The beauty of our jellyfish nets is that they serve a dual purpose. They can form part of a safety barrier to demarcate a safe swimming area, or they can double as a debris boom to protect a swimming area from rubbish. For government entities, this is a great way to ensure that the beach is kept clean while providing a safe space for swimmers. Private resorts can also benefit from this feature, ensuring that their beaches are always clean and safe for guests to enjoy.

Keeping the marine ecosystem intact

One major concern might be the impact of jellyfish nets on marine life. At Ecocoast, we believe that to be truly sustainable, it is essential to focus on the 6Rs: rethink, reduce, reuse, repair, recover and recycle. This philosophy drives everything we do. From the materials we use in our jellyfish nets right down to the waste management hierarchy to minimize the impact on our environment.

So thankfully, our jellyfish nets do not harm marine life. The materials used in their construction are designed to protect swimmers while keeping the marine ecosystem intact. That makes them a fantastic ecological solution that allows us to keep people safe without compromising the natural beauty of our coastline.

Easy to install

Finally, one question that often comes up is whether jellyfish nets are easy to install. The answer is yes. Our nets can be supplied as a stand-alone barrier that is easy to install or a detachable barrier that can be attached to an existing safety barrier. This makes it a hassle-free experience for beach managers who can quickly have the nets installed before providing swimmers with a safe space to enjoy.

Alternatively, we offer full-service support and can help with the installation if required. Our trained professionals have experience in installing even the most complicated of barriers, so you can trust us to have it up and running in no time.

Providing Swimmers With a Safe Space

No one wants to be stung by a jellyfish while enjoying their time at the beach. Jellyfish nets are a fantastic solution that provides swimmers with a safe space to play without fear of jellyfish swarms. Whether you’re a beach manager or an avid beachgoer, you can rely on them to create a safe and comfortable environment. Jellyfish nets come with the added benefit of being an eco-friendly solution that does not harm marine life. So, why not take advantage of this solution and let them enjoy their beach experience to the fullest?
