Every monsoon, pelagic (inhabiting open waters) creatures such as Blue buttons, Portuguese Man o' Wars, Gooseneck barnacles and jellyfish wash ashore in Mumbai because of the strong on-shore monsoon winds. Though some of these animals are harmless, direct contact with some can be quite painful.

We've created these advisories about Mumbai's monsoon visitors so you can get to know them better. Feel free to download and share them.
