Is the Persian Gulf polluted?



  1. 0 Votes

    Pollution in the Persian Gulf is a real issue. The marine life there is threatened because of oil drilling, war, and industrialization. The Gulf contains a unique ecosystem and a fragile coral reef. The reefs are being destroyed because of oil and the building of docks and piers. The Persian Gulf is also home to upwards of 450 species of fish, not to mention birds, that are being affected by the industrialization. Global warming has also increased the salinity (the amount of salt in the water) of the Gulf by evaporating the water more quickly, thus upsetting the salt-water balance in the Gulf, and this damages the fish and coral within the Persian Gulf as well.
