it is dangerous to swim in the Caspian Sea, as its water is polluted, thus the swim in the sea should be prohibited, the Vice President of the Office of Ecology and Environment of Iran Abdulrza Karbasi said, IRNA reported.

The Caspian Sea is mainly polluted with oil, industrial and household waste, as well as sewage, Karbasi noted.

"Iran's share in pollution of the sea is equal to 12 percent," he said.

"The sea from the Iranian part is mainly polluted with industrial and household waste, he said. "Around 400 million cubic meters of these waste per year is produced in Caspian provinces of Iran, only 40 percent of which is filtrated and the remaining part is released to the sea without any filtration," Karbasi added.
