Piran, 3 July - Marine mucilage, also known as sea snot or sea saliva, a thick, gelatinous organic matter lately observed in the Mediterranean Sea, has been causing problems to fishermen and tourists on the Slovenian coast in recent weeks. Although the situation has improved somewhat over the weekend thanks to the wind, the snot has started reappearing.
