Authorities have confirmed that algal bloom or 'green tide' led to the death of dozens of fish in the sea near Seeb.
The green tide led to a lack of oxygen in the water in the area, with dozens of fish in the port area in the wilayat of Seeb being found dead.
The Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries statement came after a video posted in social media showed a large number of dead fish floating in the sea near Seeb.
"After the inspection of the site, it was found that an oxygen shortage was caused by the condition known as green tide, which led to the death of some fish in limited quantities and is considered a natural condition. Specialists are following up at the site." - Ministry of Agriculture and Fisheries
