 Fishermen in the area blamed one of their own for the massive die off, saying that nets left too long in the water, became moss lined and fishes in the nets could not get oxygen and died.

However, Fye said that it was not the first time his nets were targeted .

Officials from the Environmental Management Authority (EMA) visited the scene on Wednesday and carried out test.
