 Abstract
The objective of this study is to empirically analyze the relationship between sea temperature and jellyfish blooms. Ever since the 2000s, jellyfish population has been dramatically increased, which brought negative influence on the national health and the fisheries activities. Jellyfish blooms have been recognized as an effect of climate change, but there has been no empirical evidence to support such relationship. In this paper, the relationship between sea temperature and jellyfish blooms has been analyzed by using the regional jellyfish monitoring data and coastal stationary observing data of National Institute of Fisheries Science. Since the dependant variable carries left censoring issues, we used the panel tobit model. Our results indicate that there are statistically significant positive relationship between sea temperature and jellyfish blooms.
