No mate. they are  "by - the - wind - sailors" harmless to humans. They feed on plankton by stinging though. GM put some info on them. I have seen Portuguese man of war many times. But never seen these before and I've been sea fishing for 50 years and more and worked on fishing boats. Strange things.

Cheers Arry

50yrs sea fishing fair play mate.

You seen anything strange whilst on fishing boats.like great white sightings or any other beast's.

And what's the biggest you caught from the shore mate..

Sorry for the questions lol.but I do find the sea a place of wonder 👍

And no better person to ask than someone who has spent so much time around it..

Been very lucky mate growing up when there were more fish about. 31lb 3oz conger and 11lb Huss same night landing solo off rock mark shore. 16llb 15oz 2dr Bull Huss from Shore, 5lb 15oz 8dr Plaice from shore think it still stands as my old club record is some of them mate. As said I've been lucky. I still get out but just for pleasure now, was a well know angler once Lol.

Seen Sun Fish from boat in fact netted it in a landing net about 20lb, put it back a very strange fish. No Great Whites sorry.

Cheers Arry

Nature is so incredible: our imaginations cannot even conceive of such a wealth of diversity and beauty. Imagine seeing a vast flotilla of these in the open water. It's easy to see how ancient mariners came up with tales of monsters and such like emerging from the depths.
