EPA com­ments on sub­stances:

The En­vi­ron­men­tal Pub­lic Au­thor­ity (EPA) has com­mented on some pic­tures that went vi­ral on so­cial me­dia which shows the spread of un­known black sub­stances in Kuwaiti bay area, re­ports Al-Seyas­sah daily.

Based on the read­ings of the mar­itime mon­i­tor­ing and ob­ser­va­tion net­work, this in­di­cates the start of the nat­u­ral and sea­sonal phe­nom­e­non with the flour­ish­ing of green al­gae and harm­ful al­gae.

EPA ex­plained that it, since last March, has been par­tic­i­pat­ing in an in­ten­sive mon­i­tor­ing and ob­ser­va­tion process in very sen­si­tive ar­eas in the Kuwaiti bay area where en­vi­ron­men­tal in­ci­dents and phe­nom­ena oc­cur.

It ob­served an in­crease in phys­i­cal and bi­o­log­i­cal in­di­ca­tors, which is a pre­lude to the flour­ish­ing of al­gae in the re­gion and a phe­nom­e­non known as “Eutroph­i­ca­tion”.

The al­gae flour­ish­ing sea­son will be fol­lowed by de­crease in the rate of oxy­gen ab­sorbed in the wa­ter, which will lead to the death of some types of fish.
