Underwater photographs taken from different parts of İzmir Bay showed a different kind of kur pipe-formed ”type for the first time. This type of size and color of pipe wolves loving clean seas for the first time indicating that E.Ü Faculty of Fisheries faculty member. Levent Yunga said, kirlilik They found the chance to live and multiply because the pollution in İzmir Bay decreased. This is remarkable and pleasing. ”
The latest report of the Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology at Dokuz Eylül University showed that the improvement in the Gulf continues.
In the Gulf of Izmir, where all kinds of waste were discharged until the 2000s, the cleaning process, which gained momentum with the environmental investments of the Metropolitan Municipality, continues rapidly. The underwater photographs taken by the General Directorate of IZSU in order to detect the life under the sea once again revealed the improvement in the Gulf. Izmir Metropolitan Municipality Youth and Sports Club Underwater Imaging Team Trainer licensed diver and underwater photographer Murat Kaptan, an unprecedented "pipe wolf" type, caught the attention of the scientific world.
University initiated investigation
Ege University Faculty of Fisheries Faculty Member Levent Yunga, the first time in the inner Gulf of this size and color of a pipe-formed type of display is a welcome message, he said. Yunga stated that they will examine in the laboratory to find out which type of pipe is 2-1 inches long in Narlıdere at 2 meters. UM Xnumx-Xnumx has been established in our seas. But for the first time we see this size and color pipe worm in Izmir Bay. We're going to see what kind of labos ratto do. Perhaps it may also be a new species for the first time in Izmir Bay. If it is a new kind, we will send it to abroad. Perhaps this is the type of the whole world to be announced from Izmir. No matter what the kind of water filter, seawater, phytoplankton, bacteria, algae picking up and feeding, fan-shaped tentacles of the breathing of the wolves in the dirty seas can not live because of the chance to live. The color and size of the photographed pipe worm is very pleasant and remarkable. Because the pollution in Izmir Bay was reduced and they had the chance to grow and multiply. Pipe worms like to grow in clean seas, Boru he said.
Since 2000 started the Grand Canal Project, Yunga stated that the Gulf of Izmir started to be cleaned in the following years.
“When we look at the 25-year period of the Izmir Bay, we see this improvement very clearly. When we looked at the images we took from the bottom of the Gulf in 1995, there was no view. Now there are thousands of seahorses in Konak. The presence of seahorses shows that the sea is clean. Since the pollution load coming to the bay is prevented, fish, lobsters and shrimps start to come from the outer bay to the inner bay and the species increase. Again, the sea meadows last seen in Yassıcaada are also a very good development for our Bay. It is gratifying that the sea meadows in the coastal regions of the Mediterranean are sprouting in Izmir Bay. It shows that the sea is clean. We hope the sea meadows will grow even bigger. When the pollution flow was prevented, the sea started to clean itself. The important thing is to protect it ”.
Nice news from September
İzmir Metropolitan Municipality closely follows the changes in Izmir Bay after the great environmental investments with the scientific studies of the Institute of Marine Sciences and Technology of Dokuz Eylul University.
The latest report of the university, including the 2018 period, showed that the improvement in the Gulf continues to increase, just like in 2017, 2016, 2015, 2014, 2013 and 2012. In the report, it was pointed out that the number of living species increased with the increase in the level of dissolved oxygen observed at levels that were too low to allow living things to survive before treatment facilities. The level of dissolved oxygen (one of the indicators of high water quality), which dropped to zero at the bottom of the Gulf in 2000 and does not give fish a chance to survive, was measured at 2018 mg / lt levels in surface waters in 7 across the Gulf. For marine creatures, this value in surface waters should not be less than 4-5 mg / lt, depending on the species of the living creatures in the environment.
Color revel in the Gulf
The rooster, sea meadows, crabs and anemones taken by Murat Kaptan reflect the colorful world under the Gulf of Izmir. Photos taken at the same time from different points of the Gulf of Izmir Metropolitan Municipality also reveals that the sample quality treatment in Turkey.
