Southern Marine Ecosystems in Jeopardy

Natural and human-caused factors have put the ecosystem in Iran's southern waters of the Persian Gulf and Sea of Oman under environmental pressure, said a senior official at the Department of Environment.
Based on the latest investigations, the ecosystem in the coastal area is on the verge of crossing the ecological threshold as the biodiversity is gradually being destroyed.
Ecological threshold is defined as the point at which a relatively small change or disturbance in external conditions causes a rapid change in the ecosystem. 
"Traces of the damage are evident in the shrinking Hara forests in Qeshm Island and the declining number of aquatic species tending to reproduce in the Persian Gulf waters," ILNA quoted Davoud Mirshekar, DOE's director for marine ecosystems, as saying.
