Coastal ecosystem of the Black Sea flood victims in the Kuban

Flushing large amounts of dirt into the Black Sea, which occurred as a result of flooding in the Kuban, has hit the coastal ecosystems, but did not lead to the death of fish, according to Head of the Laboratory of Ecology Institute of Oceanology plankton Michael Flint.

"The Black Sea in its coastal area is opaque, it was full of mist, haze, sulfur smell from the sea is rotting, swimming enormous amount of different waste and litter. And as the south wind blows Surges, then anywhere from coastal garbage is gone, too No storm that debris washed ashore. situation is more than sad, "- told RIA Novosti Flint.

According to scientists, severe pollution caused by the fact that the sea had washed away the top layer of soil in which the concentrated heavy metals.

"The entire top layer of soil, accumulates all conceivable mud effects and all sorts of car exhaust emissions, was washed away in a coastal area of the sea with large areas, the size of which we currently can not even imagine. Destroyed sewage systems, and all washed away in flood Sea. while I am even afraid to talk about the possible concentration of various pollutants, "- said the scientist.

According to the source, the flood washed away pollutants disappear quickly, as they settled on the bottom of the suspension will again rise to the surface with each swell.

"Black Sea biota, and so is a fairly strong influence of different factors, it is weakened today, and when she was still a colossal amount of impact will the suspension, which changes the properties of water, plus all kinds of toxins, of course I think the consequences will be very sad and long enough in that part of the sea, where it fell by pollution … and for the person and for the fauna that inhabits the Black Sea, "- said Flint.

Meanwhile, biookeanolog does not believe that water pollution will lead to fish kills.

"The region is prone to contamination, is quite close to the shore. Even Cyclopean volume of fresh water and mud that hit the sea, they are not commensurate with the volume of the pool. Fish are mobile organisms, and easy care of the contamination zone, and in advance when Pollution is just beginning to emerge. A benthic organisms suffer very much ", — concluded the expert.

In this context, researchers at the Institute of Oceanology of the Russian Academy of Sciences Shirshov going soon to compare the state of the water and marine life off the coast of Gelendzhik, where he was high water, and in the Adler, undisturbed elements.

Flooding on the night of July 7 sank 7.2 thousand houses in the three cities (Gelendzhik, Crimea, Novorossiysk) and a number of villages of the Krasnodar Territory. Violated the electrical, gas and water supply, road and rail traffic. Killed 172 people.
