In 2016 Ukraine with the Council of Europe and European countries began the project, EMBLAS Environmental Monitoring in the Black Sea analysis of the ecological state of the Black sea.
The aim of the project is to identify and study the main threats to the ecological safety of the sea, and then to develop a plan for his rescue, reports the website of the Duma.
It is known that the Black sea because of its closeness and distance from the ocean, and also due to uncontrolled discharges remains one of the most polluted.

Victor Comorin, Director of the Ukrainian scientific center of ecology of sea, said that over the past 20 years the hydrogen sulfide layer has risen to 20-25 meters is a very disturbing trend.
It is known that Black sea is the largest anoxic waters in the world. Hydrogen sulfide is a dangerous death of some marine life, particularly fish and dolphins. But despite this, scientists have been able to find in the anoxic layer at depths of 90-160 m (occupies 87% of the total water space) archaea Lokiarchaeota — one of the domains of nature, along with bacteria and eukaryotes. This suggests that this area is not a desert, but also a “flowering garden”, similar to the anoxic biosphere of the planet or of the young Earth.
