HARVEY CEDARS -- A venomous fish washed up on a beach in Long Beach Island Friday.
According to Harvey Cedars Beach Patrol Captain Randy Townsend, a Portuguese Man O'War was found around 10 a.m. Friday. It appears as if it had washed up on the shore.
The Portuguese Man O' War is known for its dangerous tentacles that if stung, it can be extremely painful.
It is not the first time the jellyfish has been found on the beach at the Harvey Cedar Beach. One Man O' War was found towards the end of the summer last year and more were found in 2015.
