They can't steer like jellyfish and they always wash up on beaches, just since they increase in numbers you see them much more lately I think..
Don't know that much about them really.
The pattern of currents in the Northern Pacific Ocean is a circular gyre that tends to bring floating objects into the centre of the ocean, not to
"end up on beaches".
That's why we have the mid-ocean garbage patch.
Balloonists can't steer their craft either, but by rising or descending, they can control their direction of travel. The same goes for these
creatures. The higher in the water column they float, the more eastward their travel due to the prevailing winds caused by the direction of the Earths
If these animals inflate to the max, and stay that way, they WILL end up on a NA beach. If they sink they will travel westward and remain in the ocean
Something is causing them to inflate and travel eastward and I expect it is a 'flight' response, since they can't 'fight' radioactive isotopes.
That, or they are following their food source eastward.
Either way, the underlying cause is the nuclear melt-throughs at Fukushima Daiichi toxifying the ocean outwards from Japan.
