The increase in population and the development of various industries have caused a large number of pollutants to enter the water environment. One of the major environmental pollutants is heavy metals. Due to characteristics such as chemical stability, poor degradability, and the power of bioaccumulation at different levels of the food chain, these metals cause harm and ecological risks to living organisms. Every year, toxic and chemical effluents enter rivers, seas, and oceans during agricultural and industrial activities without observing environmental considerations, which has caused water, sediments, and aquatic pollution and created many problems for the environment and humans. Regarding the pollution of heavy metals in the water and sediments of the Persian Gulf, many studies have been conducted, some of which indicate the presence of pollution in the water and sediments. In the present study, a comprehensive review of the studies conducted regarding heavy metal pollution in water and sediments of Persian Gulf coasts has been done.
Keywords: Heavy metals, Sediments, Persian Gulf.
