Sargasso Sea

The Sargasso Sea is a sea that lies in the middle of the North Atlantic Ocean and is bounded by ocean currents. It is surrounded by the Gulf Stream on the west, by the North Atlantic Current on the north, by the Canary Current on the east and by the North Atlantic Equatorial Current on the south. North Atlantic Subtropical Gyre is formed by this system of currents.


The Sargasso covers about 700 statute miles width and 2,000 statute miles length. It widens from 70 degrees west to 40 degrees west, and from 25 degrees north to 35 degrees north. The Sargasso Sea has no shores. The ocean of the sea is in deep blue color and the underwater visible for up to 200 feet (61 m).

Ecology: The Sargasso Sea is habitat to seaweed (sargassum) and many other species; the seaweed (sargassum) floats on the surface of the sea.
