New booklet on ecologically or biologically significant marine areas focuses on the North Pacific

The ecologically or biologically significant marine areas (EBSA) booklet series provide snapshot summaries of the pages upon pages of data compiled by participating experts, to provide an inspiring overview of some of the most ecologically or biologically significant ocean areas in the world. In this edition looking at the North Pacific, discover a region of contrasts, spanning the tips of the tropical waters of the Pacific islands and the warm shores of Mexico, to the windswept cliffs of the Aleutian Islands and the depths of the almost otherworldly deep seabed. It is a dynamic and turbulent region, with churning deep-sea hydrothermal vents, migratory species crossing the vast Pacific, and powerful ocean gyres and currents.
