dc.descriptionIraq can be considered one of the marine countries, Situated at the head of the Arabian Gulf. The area of national territorial waters about 900 km 2, from FAW port . this area is characterized by lack of depth waters where the maximum depth is about 15 m and this waters are under effects of tidal currents, where the water levels rises and lowers about 2.40 m. regional coastal waters are directly continued with gulf waters and exchanging with marine waters by tidal movement, as the water flows from Gulf and Karun river to Shatt al-Arab and back, Therefore this area is characterized with high fertility water which attracts fishes for feeding or breeding purposes, few species of these fishes may continue to migrate to internal waters through Shatt al-Arab and marshes.
