The 'Red Tide' - hundreds of lobsters die
Hundreds of lobsters have died at the red tide reaches the Western Cape shores.
The West Coast rock lobster was starved of oxygen after the red tide came in about 10 days ago.
The algal bloom is around 80km long and about 3km wide. It's called the red tide because of the red colour the algae takes when it blooms.
Experts are helping to save some of the lobsters by relocating to parts of the ocean that have not been affected by the red tide.
Many officials from municipalities, as well as volunteers, are helping to clean the beaches.
