Monmouth Beach is alerting residents that potentially dangerous clinging jellyfish have been found in the Shrewsbury River. Three dime-sized clinging jellyfish were found in the river on Wednesday, officials said. In addition, a Middletown man swimming in the Shrewsbury River was hospitalized after being stung by one.

This news comes on the heels of a report last week that a fisherman recently caught the tiny jellyfish in the Barnegat Bay just south of Point Pleasant Inlet. The discovery of this tiny jellyfish in the waters of New Jersey has come as quite a surprise. CONTINUE
