Vinegar troubles with Box Jellyfish first aid - Dr Jamie Seymour
8th April 2014
For decades, victims of box jellyfish stings have recieved a douse of vinegar over the wound to prevent the unfired stinging cells (nematocycsts) from discharging.
However, new research from Dr Jamie Seymour and his team has found that vinegar increases the venom load from stinging cells that have already fired. This new information may lead to alterations in the current first aid recommendations for box jellyfish victims.
On 31st January 2014, OceansIQ uploaded footage to our YoutTube channel showing a pod of dolphins removing bait (mullet) from a drumline hook. The footage was taken on the Gold Cost some years ago during a documentary production, but was never used in the final edit.
After sending the footage out through the usual channels, buy Monday morning we had recived over 10 000 hits on YoutTube and had it pilfered by LiveLeak.
We are pleased we have been able to highlight the issue of drumlines on the East coast of Australia to many people.
