Right option is (b) Algal bloom
 
The explanation is: The excessive growth of planktons in any water body due to the presence of nutrients is known as an algal bloom. An algal bloom or marine bloom or water bloom is a rapid increase of algae in an aquatic system (freshwater as well as marine water).
