Anzali Lagoon
Anzali Lagoon
Anzali Lagoon is a coastal liman , or lagoon , in the Caspian Sea near Bandar-e Anzali , in the northern Iranian province of Gilan . The lagoon divides Bandar-e Anzali into two parts , and is home to both the Selke Wildlife Refuge and the Siahkesheem Marsh .
Although the lagoon suffers from pollution , it is known as a good place for bird watching . The lagoon's water ranges from fresh near the tributary streams to brackish near the mouth into the harbor and the sea . Studies indicate that in the 19th and early 20th Centuries that the lagoon had a much higher salinity .
The lagoon has decreased in size since the 1930s to less than a quarter of its former extent . However , in the last ten years (As of 2007) water salinity has increased both by the rise of the level of the Caspian Sea which has caused greater interchange of waters , and due to greater salt transport in incoming "fresh" water due to increased upstream irrigation .
The lagoon has been designated a Ramsar site .
