Mass fish death was recorded in the Iranian sector of the Caspian Sea," Iranian Gulistan Province's Nature Conservation Department Deputy Head Mohsen Jafarnejad said.

Mass death of fish in the Caspian Sea is recorded on the west coast of the Gulistan Province. A large number of dead mullet have washed ashore, reported.

"An analysis of samples taken from dead fish was carried out, and now we are waiting for their results," Jafarnejad said.

The Gulistan Province is located in northeastern Iran. The center of the province is the Gurgan city.

In recent years, such cases are observed in various places around the world. Scientists suggest that the causes of the recent events may be a global disaster or testing of biological weapons.
