The surrounding region of the creek is uninhabited marshlands. During the rainy season between June and September, the creek gets flooded along its banks and envelops the low-lying salty mudflats all around it. During the winter season, the area is home to countless flamingoes and other migratory birds. Though the creek has little military value, it experiences immense economic profit. Much of the region is a rich ground of oil and gas below the seabed. The creek is exploited in a way that has a huge bearing on the energy potential of each nation. The boundaries of the creek are defined that helps in the determination of the maritime boundaries, which are drawn as an expansion of onshore reference points. Maritime boundaries also help in determining the limits of Exclusive Economic Zones (EEZs) and continental shelves. EEZs broaden to 200 nautical miles (370 km) and are commercially exploited. The demarcation would also prevent the not deliberate crossing over of fishermen of both nations into each other's areas.
