Argentine Sea Map

Center map

The Argentina Sea is located to the east of the Argentinian mainland. It has an area of 1 million km2, which makes it the largest sea in the South Atlantic Ocean. The sea lacks international recognition, but is symbolically important to Argentina, as it plays a role in its claims over the Falkland Islands, a British overseas territory. The Argentine sea is very temperate, as it receives cold water from the Falkland Current to the south, and warm water from the Brazil Current to the north. As such, it is a place of great biodiversity with animals like penguins, whales, dolphins and seals.
