area di ricerca:

Iran has 992 Km coastal line in the north at the Caspian, the world’s largest lake, 1950 Km in the south at the Persian Gulf and 784 km at the Oman Sea.The Persian Gulf is a partially closed sea of salty water with an average depth of 35 meters and 1000 kilometers of length, with 48 to 57 longitude, 26-east degree and 24 to 30, Latitude, 35-north degree. It is one of the most important seas in middle-east areas, which joins free international waters through the Strait of Hormoz. Due to its unique geological position, the Persian Gulf is a place for a lot of ship traffic and like other aqua resources faces a huge stress from anthropogenic sources.Although the Persian Gulf water is warm, but oxygen content in the water varies from 4 to 7 mg L-1. Water Temperature in summer water varies from 28 to 30 °C with minimum level in northwest and maximum in the strait of Hormoz, although can go up to 35.8 °C (ROMPE, 2004). The tide nature of the Persian Gulf is complex, from semi –diurnal to diurnal.The seafood, notably fish and shrimp, is of value for both local consumption and export revenue. However, the relatively fragile ecosystem experiences high temperatures, salinity and UV exposure (Sheppard et al., 1992. The desalination of water for salinity purposes is other pollution source in this area. In fact, over 60 percent of the world's desalinating facilities, with a capacity of over four billion cubic meters, can be found in this part of the world. As a result, many species function close to their physiological limits and the added stress imposed by pollutants is likely to have severe consequences (Sheppard et al., 1992).Ongoing industrial development in the region, even though geographically variable continues to cause concern. The extraction of oil from coastal areas and the continental shelf of the Persian Gulf, coupled with its export (40% of the world oil transportation) and the passage of oil tankers (almost 20-30 thousands of oil tankers) along the waterway have had an increasingly destructive impact on marine ecosystems.According to FAO estimation potential fish resources in the Persian Gulf is 550,000 tons, about 8 times more than Oman Sea and 20 % of the North Sea (Moller, et al., 1977). The Persian Gulf is not only important because of its nutrient resources, also is important because of its biological varieties, which are:

  • Various kinds of Phytoplankton show enough nutrients and proper circulation of organic matter in the Gulf.
  • Newstones (surface living organisms), like bacteria, insects, larvae and other kinds of insects, live only in static layers of surface waters and cannot survive in motional parts.
  • Benthos (bed living organisms), Foraminifer, Cirripedia (Banarcle or ship sticking is a kind of them), Miophenes, like Nematods, Strakods, and larva of Macrophones are benthos. They vary in size between 100 micron and 500 microns.
  • Algae with weak and slow growth rate, Gastropod, Mollusk,  Marine cyprea, Coral, Sea cucumbers, Sea snakes (Muraenids), Turtle,
  • Marine mammal (marine whales, Dugong), Sharks, Marine crabs, Lobsters.
  • Shrimp: The distribution and abundance of shrimp in the Persian Gulf is high enough that their fishing is possible even with preliminary equipment, at a depth of 3.5 to 5.5 meters.
  • Fishes (Kardovani, 1995).

 The Caspian Sea (Khazar): The Caspian Sea with semi-saline water is located at the N 36º, 33´ (southeast point) to N 47º, 07´ (northeast point) latitudes and of 45º, 43´ (West Point) to 54º, ‌20´ (East Point) longitudes (CEP, 2006).A major difference between the Caspian Sea and other large inland water bodies is its meridian orientation and great length (1,200 km), resulting in large differences in climate over the sea and especially over the catchments area; the northern shores are subject to extreme continental climate, while the southern and southwestern coast is in the sub-tropics(CEP, 2002). Its north part depth (the deepest part) is 25 m but most south part of it is deep (CEP, 2002). This sea is commonly divided into three portions: the northern, middle and southern parts.Water temperature varies considerably with latitude. This difference is greatest (about 10 °C) in the winter when temperature in the north is 0-0.5 °C; it is 10-11 °C in the south (CEP, 2002; Aladin et al., 2001). Surface water temperatures for the South Caspian are reported as 7.0-10.3 °C in winter, 7.9-14.0 °C in spring, 25.0-29.0 °C in summer and 12.0-19.0 °C in autumn (Rozengurt and Hedgpeth et al., 1989). The Caspian Sea surface water Salinity is about 12.6 to 13.5, increasing from north to south and from west to east. The Caspian Sea salinity is less than dissolved material level in ocean. There is also a slight increase in salinity with depth (0.1 to 0.2 p.p.t) observed in all regions of the sea (CEP, 2006).Many small and big organisms live in Caspian Sea, 854 species of animals and over 500 different species of plant. Many organismms, which live in ocean and open-seas do not exist in this sea or are limited to few species. A part of Marine organisms in this sea are: algae (most green to blue), Phytoplanktons (over 200 species in middle regions), Zooplanktons, Zoobenthos (Crustacea and Mollusks), Sweet water long crabs, Frog, Marine Mammal and fishes (Kosarev et al., 1994). The Sea fishes can be categorized in three groups, local, migrate and semi-migrate. Local fishes are such as Lai and Esocidae live permanently in Gulf, Migrate (migratory) fishes such as percidae, Ritilus, frisiikutoum mash and Semi-migratory fishes are such as Cyprinus carpio (Kapoor). In this region about 76 different fish species exist, of which 44 species are important from aquatic point of view. The sturgeon, salmon and Kilka are among the fishes that thrive in the Caspian. The Caspian Sea is rich in marine fish of commercial value (CEP, 2002). The Caspian Sea is a source of over than 90 % of sturgeon fishing with a valuable million dollarsData from the northeast Caspian Sea and of Azerbaijan show accumulations of heavy metals in bony fish. In the recent years there have been various reports of progressing anthropogenic eutrophication (expanding oil and spill in coastal areas) leading to the reduction of dissolved oxygen in the benthos and the development of anaerobic processes in sediments (Agah et al., 2007, 2010, 2011a and 2011b; Salmanov et al., 1999). As a result of this eutrophication, it is claimed that near Baku the Absheron peninsula and nearby archipelagos, the primary production due to phytoplankton has been reduced by more than 40 times and the phytobenthos has also been reduced (CEP, 2002) Oman Sea is input path of fresh water flows to the Persian Gulf via Arabian Sea and Indian Ocean; also it is an important (and vital) shipping route for the oil-producing countries in the Persian Gulf. Chabahar Bay, which is situated on the Makran Coastline in Sistan and Baluchestan Province, Southeast of Iran, is a free port and industrial zone on the coast of the Gulf of Oman. The special importance of Chabahar Bay is due to its Ω shape and limited water circulation. The study area has humid climate, hot summers and moderate winters. Fishing and marine commerce are the main activities in the study areas.  Due to increasing trade and industrial activities in recent decade in this area, it is expected that these activities could influence on accumulating anthropogenic pollution on the coastal and marine sediments.
