Sea saliva seen in many parts of the Marmara Sea and spreading to the shores of Kadıköy and Maltepe began to surround the Bandırma Bay.
Dean of the Faculty of Maritime Faculty of Bandırma Onyedi Eylül University Prof. Dr. Mustafa Sarı told Anadolu Agency (AA) that mucilage is a jelly-like formation formed by the excessive proliferation of microscopic plants called phytoplankton, which constitute the first step of biological life in the sea.
Yellow, mucilage has been seen in the Adriatic and Mediterranean since the 18th century, He told that it spread mostly in the winter of 2007-2008 in the Marmara Sea.

The increase in the amount of nitrogen and phosphorus in sea water in winter months for the formation of mucilage, the sea is calm. Expressing that the sea water temperature should be higher than average, Sarı continued as follows:
“The increase in the amount of elements such as nitrogen and phosphorus in the sea is largely related to domestic wastes such as sewage. When the sea water temperature is above the average for many years in the winter months, the plant plankton that cause mucilage proliferate rapidly and and tries to reduce the phosphorus load. Mucilage, which is the result of this excessive proliferation, is generally seen starting from 5 meters deep to 25-30 meters. Stating that he killed the plants, sponges and other creatures living here when it collapsed to the bottom of the sea by covering it, Sarı said, “While mucilage disappears, some of it breaks down to the sea surface and can extend for kilometers on the shores. Some of it will sink to the bottom of the sea. .. He was released from prison, he strangled his ‘friend’ whom he met 2 hours ago and killed Turkey
Emphasizing that the nitrogen and phosphorus load in the seas should be reduced, Sarı said:
“Climate change and stable sea conditions that cause mucilage are not under our control. But it is in our hands to reduce the nitrogen and phosphorus load, which is the biggest factor. This year, fishermen suffered from mucilage in the Sea of Marmara. Now the tourist season is starting. Thousands of people will flock to the beaches and the sea. We will welcome those who come with these images. So mucilage, a blow is about to hit tourism. Governorships, municipalities and other stakeholders around the Marmara Sea should be urgently gathered with the agenda of mucilage, and measures should be taken urgently to ensure that no waste is released into the Marmara Sea without treating a single liter. “
