Several poisonous Chironex jellyfish have been found in the Andaman Sea near the Ao Nam Mao pier in the province of Krabi.

The Department of Marine and Coastal Resources has urged tourists not to enter the sea immediately after rain or when there are dead jellyfish on the beach. If possible, they should swim in suits that cover most of the body and seek immediate medical assistance if stung by a jellyfish.

It is known that Chironex jellyfish are dangerous to humans. In 2022, a 6-year-old girl from Israel survived after being stung by a Chironex jellyfish on Koh Phangan Island. In total, from 1999 to 2021, Thailand has recorded 48 cases of serious injuries and deaths caused by Chironex jellyfish.
