Biagio di Mauro, a scientist at Italy's National Research Council, said the colour is caused by a plant, which is more commonly found in Greenland.

“The alga is not dangerous, it is a natural phenomenon that occurs during the spring and summer periods in the middle latitudes but also at the Poles,” he told the Guardian.
