Background:Recently, water contamination is become a globally crisis for human health. Aquatic environments are encountered to different pollutant nutrients, for example which led to raise concerns about water contamination, especially through non-point sources considered as an important environmental issue for animals and human health. The aim of current study was to investigate the amounts of nutrients in coastal waters of Hormozgan Province.Methods:Eight stations have been chosen to do sampling in Bandarabbas city. In this research, nutrients such as phosphor (PO-4), ammonium (NH+4), Nitrate (NO-3), nitrite (NO-2), and SiO-2 were detected by Spectrophotometer and physico-chemical properties including pH, temperature, salinity, and electric conductivity (EC) were measured. Results: The results of physic-chemical properties (mean ± SD) of stations indicated that the temperature was 27.3 ± 3.1 0C, salinity was % 37.8 ± 1.1, EC was 56112.5 ± 816.6 μS/cm. Also, nutrients were fond (μg/l) 0.08 ± 0.03, 11 ± 0, 1.1 ± 0.1, 0.02 ± 0, 0.3 ± 0.1 for NH+4, NO-2, NO-3, PO-4, and SiO-2, respectively.Conclusions:These findings impose us to perform interval risk assessments from physical and chemical properties of waters where located in industrial zones for water user's health.
