Laboratory experiments on the effects of crude oil on the red sea coral stylophora pistillata

, : Laboratory experiments on the effects of crude oil on the red sea coral stylophora pistillata. Marine Pollution Bulletin 10(11): 328-330

Sub-lethal detrimental effects of Iranian crude oil were studied on the hermatypic coral S. pistillata in a long term laboratory experiment. The experimental system consisted of 4 1500 l capacity tanks, 2 of which were periodically polluted. A significant decrease in the number of female gonads per polyp were recorded in 75% of the colonies in the polluted tanks. It is concluded that chronic oil pollution damages the reproductive system of scleractinian corals.
