Happened on mine too. Honda dealership said it's normal but isn't something you can sort easily. Not sure if that's true or not.

It's actually not the seal. There's a gap between the two layers of plastic that fills up with water and gradually develops mould/moss. Easiest way to sort it is to remove the clusters, grab a toothbrush, a syringe and a solution of bleach and water, squirt the solution through the gap and give it a good scrub. I also used a very thin bottle brush (one for test tubes) to get to every bit. Once done, it should look clear and stay that way for a while.
