Abstract: Beach stranding of the jelly Porpita porpita (Linnaeus 1758) was observed in stretches from Astaranga to Puri (Odisha) during May 2016. A study was carried out by taking environmental parameters to decipher the possible causes. These jellies were abundant in the coastal waters during this period. It was found out that this jellyfish was observed in large numbers in this coast during March-May (summer season). From the satellite derived current and wind data, it was observed that the beach stranding was due to drifting of the jellyfishes favoured by shoreward current and wind.
