                        Marine life play a major  role for sustainable economy. 
Coastal area of Pakistan 990 k.m divided in two parts Sindh cost & Makran cost  namley as Arabian sea, this is important route of fishing industreis and  transportation. Main routes  of transportation in Pakisatn is  Karachi port and qasim port know a days  gawadar port is also constructing.
                         In this area of sea  present of green turtles, fishes, dolphins, Wales, corals, Ports, volcanoes, minerals.
                         Factors responsible for degradation of fisheries and marine life of Pakistan. Uses of harmful fishing gears are that serious threat for marine biodiversity, depletion of mangroves because mangroves  are important breeding and feeding for fish these  forest cover huge area at costal eight species of mangroves have been reported only four are surviving know a days. The reduction of fresh water flow into below kotrii barrage are impact on mangrow growth and productivity of fish and marine resources,  increasing of pollution is disposing of untreated domestic and industrial waste in sea. Marine ecosystem challenge  is that uses of non sustainable land on Karachi coastal area. Other marine life and eco system challenge in pakistan is discharge of hazardous waste in sea such as plastic waste, hospital waste oil spillage , heavy metal and glaciers melting are  main cause of flood, flood also life threating for flora and fauna of this area.
                        Sea view in karachi is continuously losing its marine life  because defence housing authority disposing waste into the sea, judicial commission on water and sanitation has warmed that it might ban all construction of DHA  because authority is not resolve issues of release un treated waste in Arabian sea through sea view, recently Pakistan declared astola & churna island are the protected marine area of the country. 
                       All efforts are appreciable but are not enough to solve all challanges, so require attention from the government, the Private Sector and Common People.

    Hello Fayaz

    I could learn a lot about the marine environmental situation in Pakistan. It seems that most of the problems going on in Pakistan is common with many other nations. Of those problems, I want to focus on the melting of the glacier and the following floods. Most of the people don't get the chance to actually see those huge glaciers, but those melting on the other side of the earth is affecting the whole planet. This tells us that the earth is so much connected that the damaged nature will impact the whole planet. This is one of the reasons the human society mush try its best to preserve the environment.

    Thank you for the great report.

    Keep up the great work.

    Hello Fayaz!
    It's your mentor Lisa.

    Wrong methods that fishing industries use are serious threats to the marine ecosystem!! I can see that this worldwide problem is happening in your country of Pakistan as well! In solving this problem, public participation and recognition are inevitable just as it is for the other environmental problems (but especially when it comes to problems that are directly related to the livings of the people, it is important more than ever).
    Merely prohibiting the usage of those vicious fishing gear would not resolve the problem, but rather the government needs to persuade these workers in the field to change their work method.

    Thanks for sharing the story of your country and keep up the good work!
