'Red flag' for environment


A Winnipeg family got a bit of a surprise when they jumped into a Manitoba lake and found themselves surrounded by dozens of tiny jellyfish.
---

Although its origin is in China, Craspedacusta sowerbyi can now be found across the globe. It is present on almost every continent and in many U.S. states and across Eastern Canada.

However, "in about 45 years of sampling here in Manitoba, I've never come across it here," said University of Winnipeg biologist Eva Pip. She called the discovery a "red flag" for the environment.

"It shows how disrupted the ecosystems are now everywhere, and especially freshwater," Pip said.

How is that a disrupted eco system? It's only disrupted if man placed them there. What if they hitched a ride in the feathers of a bird. It's not uncommon for eggs to stick to birds and be transported during migration.
