Sources in the ecology department of the fisheries ministry clarified that the bloom off the coast of Oman was green in colour and was caused by Noctiluca
scintillans, which are not harmful algae.

According to The Telegraph, the bioluminescence in the waters was caused by Noctiluca
scintillans (popularly known as sea sparkle), which are single-celled planktons that emit a blue light.
Dinophytes that were found rare and in very few cell numbers (Alexandrium tamiyavanichii, Cochlodinium polykrikoides, Noctiluca
scintillans, and Pyrodinium bahamense var.
Most of the vibrant color probably comes from algae living in the single-celled bodies of the dinoflagellate Noctiluca

and their colleagues are the first to document the rapid rise of green Noctiluca
scintilians, an unusual dinoflagellate that eats other plankton and draws energy from the sun via microscopic algae living within its cells.

Millions of green algae living in the thick blooms of the Noctiluca
scintillans have allowed it to exploit an oxygen-starved zone the size of Texas.
The researchers used satellites and ships to observe the phytoplankton called Noctiluca
scintillans that have emerged on vast swathes of the sea west of Gujarat and northern Maharashtra and south of Pakistan during the winter months year after year over the past decade.
