Where is Sea of Okhotsk?
It is located between eastern Siberia in the northwest, Kamchatka in the Northeast, the Kuril Islands in the southeast, the island of Hokkaidō in the south and Sakhalin in the southwest. The countries bordering this sea are Japan and Russia. The Tatar sound to the North and the Strait of La Pérouse to the south of Sakhalin connect the sea of Okhotsk with the sea of Japan. The Amur River flows into the Tatar mountains as the most important river in the region.
The area of the sea of Okhotsk is 1.53 million km2. The depth of the sea increases from the Russian mainland to the Kuril Islands. The average depth is 971 meters, the deepest place has a value of 3372 meters.
Most of it freezes over for months in Winter, except for an area in the middle of the sea, or is largely covered with drift ice. The Marine Area is also notorious for frequent storms and dense fog.
The only island on the open sea is the remote Jonas island in the northwestern part of the Okhotsk Sea, about halfway between Magadan and Nikolayevsk on the Amur.
The sea has a high bio-productivity and is rich in fish. This is heavily used from the Russian side.
