The Turkish Strait Sea Area is very important waterway for global maritime transportation. Also TSSA has importances geopolitic, geographic, strategic and economic. Turkish Strait Sea Area is consist of The Istanbul Strait (Bosphorus), The Canakkale Strait (Dardanelle) and The Marmara Sea. The Turkish Straits has great importance during history.

Istanbul and Canakkale Straits are great natural waterway and seems like valley. Due this characteristics, straits needs survey and measure deply with Marine Sciences and environment sciences. Turkish Straits Sea Area’s components have become more importance cause recently increasing of energy transportation from the Blacksea. This working, try to simulation on Tanker Collusion simulation using by PISCES II and try to Show marine pollution effects at Canakkale Strait.
