"There's basically fish everywhere you go in the harbour," assistant harbour manager Jason McMullin told the Times.

Although officials have remained silent over possible causes for the mass deaths, Mr McMullin said he had heard the fish might have been driven into the harbour by an algal bloom and died from a lack of oxygen in the confined waterway.
