BIOLOGICAL ASPECTS OF WATER POLLUTION OF THE ARABIAN GULF

Auther : K. Kaisi, Ph.D

 

         The threat of pollution to the marine environment from deliberate or accidental release of noxious material from cargo ships and tankers has become more serious and critical every day.  The sea is also polluted by fall out from the atmosphere, the increasing discharge of untreated sewage and industrial effluents, run-off from the land, and the use of the sea bed for oil and mineral exploration and exploitation.

         It should be recognized that harmful effects of pollution extend seriously to the marine ecosystem and to man’s health and well being including his industrial establishment.  Industries should be aware that polluting the Gulf would have ill effects on production.  Treatment at the source through better maintenance and housekeeping, recovery of pollutants and modifications of process is not impossible and sometimes profitable.

         A research programme has become essential to be adopted by the local governments of the Gulf to solve the urgent problems related to pollution.  Special studies are needed to cover the knowledge on the extent of toxicity and chronic effects of pollutants on living organisms.  There is an urgent need for close study on man himself in relation to his ingestion of relatively small amounts of possibly dangerous substances over a prolonged period.  Urgent measures and actions are also needed for broader environmental education programmes at the local and regional levels to raise the standard of knowledge upon the subject of environment and pollution and to give a hopeful remedy to the problem of the direct and indirect destruction by pollutants of the living resources of the Gulf.
