LEBANON: Tripoli and the Batroun Coastal Area

The coastal sublittoral shows an overall impoverished state with low biodiversity - few, if any fish can be seen. Epizoic and epiphytic growth as well as the meio- and macrofauna are consistent with a high level of eutrophication. Visibility is low, but obviously varying with the seasons. Macro-pollution (tires, bottles, cans, plastic junk) seems widespread.
