Cause is Unknown

Environmental and marine researchers are sceptical about the cause of the event.

People have been prohibited from consuming the fish while the researchers are working to determine the cause.

The researchers also said the phenomenon could be bad for the marine environment as it can trigger food crises, resulting in thousands of species’ deaths and abnormal migration.
