Background
Aral Sea drying process

Millions of years ago, the north-western part of Uzbekistan and southern Kazakhstan were covered by a massive inland sea. When the water receded, it left a broad plain of highly saline soil. One of the remains of the ancient sea, the Aral Sea was the fourth largest inland sea in the world.
The Aral is an inland salt-water sea with no outlet. It is fed by two rivers, the Amu Darya and Syr Darya. The fresh water from the two rivers held the Aral water and salt levels in perfect balance.
In the early 1960s, the Soviet central government decided to increase the Soviet Union self-sufficient in cotton and rice production. Government officials ordered the additional amount of water required from the two rivers that feed the Aral Sea are taken.
Large dams were built on both rivers, and a 850-mile central canal with a far-reaching system of "feeder" channels was created. When the irrigation is complete, millions of acres along both sides of the main channel has been flooded.

In the next 30 years, the Aral Sea experienced a severe drop in water level, which entered its banks, and increased its salinity.
The marine environment was hostile to the sea life in it, the killing of animals and plants. As life in the sea died, suffered the fishing industry.
