Big gelébolde hovered in the water: Now is the mystery solved

two years ago, so divers along the coast of Norway several meterstore 'gelébolde', which 'floated' around in the sea.

Geléboldene received great attention in the Norwegian media in the summer of 2017 with both navnekonkurrencer and several different theories about their origin.

Now, the answer is that, finally, writes among other NRK.

Last year bad Havforskningsinstituttet the public for help to confirm their theory that there probably was talking about blæksprutteæg. Divers, who encountered the mysterious gelébolde, was invited to cut a piece of, if they saw them, and take it with you into the country.

genetic testing shows that the egg mixture from a southern short-fin squid. The species was described by the frenchman Jean-Baptiste Verany in 1839, and it took so 180 years, until the egg mixture was confirmed found in nature, writes Halldis Ringvold from the Sea Snack Norway - the Norwegian information centre for biodiversity - for the NTB, according to NRK.

She has been in charge of the project, where the researchers using tissue samples and observations have identified the much-talked-gelébolde.

- the Year 2019 has been the pure balls-bonanza, for there has been observed throughout the 19 gelébolde, says Halldis Ringvold, which compares the figure with the 27 observations, which were made between 2001 and 2017.

the Balls have usually had a diameter of about one meter, but can actually be up to two meters in diameter.
