Japan will ask China to conduct joint studies of the massive encroachment of giant jellyfish off China that has proved a headache for the Japanese fishery industry, according to diplomatic sources.

The government has made a similar request unofficially to South Korea, which has also been plagued by the outbreak of Nomura’s jellyfish, so the three nations can work together to come up with measures to stem damage from the swarm, the sources said.
