Could any life forms exist without oxygen in a heavily polluted environment?

I’m assuming a worst case scenario.

    Yes. There is this type of multicellular life that doesn’t need oxygen. This is a species belonging to the spinoloricus, stained with Rose Bengal. The scale bar is 50 micrometers. This species live under the Mediterranean seafloor and is significant in that it marks the first observation of multicellular organisms, or metazones, that spend their entire lifecycle under permanently anoxic conditions. A fre metazones are known to tolerate anoxic conditions, but only for limited periods of time.
