Seas Of The World
Seas can be sections of larger oceans but a number of different seas of the world are surrounded on most sides by land, creating an inlet that makes their large body of water one that stands on its own. These seas of the world are numerous and located in or beside different continents, all of different sizes and with different natural resources in the countries around them. What classifies them as seas is that they all have salt water, many with more salt than others. Check out this list of seas of the world that you may want to visit in the future or at least know something about, so you can talk about them at cocktail parties.
