درباره پرژوه

In this study, Asarab Co. in cooperation with the Norwegian company of Akvaplan-Niva, conducted an environmental assessment of the Parsian port construction to minimize adverse impacts resulting from project construction and operation. To investigate the marine environment, a specialized diving team surveyed to investigate the corals status and marine biomass, sampled physical, chemical and biological parameters to accurately identify environmental features of the area. The consultant also held meetings with the fishermen, rural councils, and NGOs to evaluate the different aspects of fishermen and locals’ concerns to be included in the plan; this participatory process enables us to investigate impacts on the livelihoods of the locals. In this study for the first-time ecological modeling of the Persian Gulf in ECOLAB model was performed.
