About the Arabian Sea
The Arabian Sea (the Green Sea, the Omani Sea also called the Persian and the Indo-Arab Sea) is surrounded by the beaches: Somali, Arabian, Persian, Near Bank of India. The Arabian Sea is located in the north-western part of the Indian Ocean between the Arabian and the Indian subcontinent. The Arabian Sea washes the shores of Oman, UAE, Djibouti, Yemen, Iran, and the Federal Territory of Lakshadweep, India and Pakistan. It is one of the deepest seas of the world with a maximum depth of over 5 kilometers. Fishing industry is very developed in the Arabian Sea. Large quantities of mackerel, sardines, tuna and marlin are being caught here. There is also shrimp and lobster extracted here.
To the west it extends under the name of the Gulf of Aden above the entrance to the Bab-el-Mandeb, which connects the Red Sea, and cuts deep into the Adalsky Tadzhurskim Gulf Coast. In the far northwest, where it is also called the Bar-Oman, Oman or the sea - name, extending to all the sea - it connects Arabia and Iran to the Persian Gulf, and in the northeast part the Gulf of Cambay and Kachsky, between which the Gudzheratsky peninsula lies.
The climate of the Arabian Sea is warm and monsoon. A significant impact on the climate of the Arabian Sea has the Indian subcontinent. The average air temperature is of +22 ... 28 degrees and it does not depend on the season. The temperature does not drop below 20 degrees. The water temperature of the sea is of 22 to 28 degrees. The water salinity is of 35,8-36,5%. The climate in summer is more humid. Typhoons are frequent in the Arabian Sea. There are several islands. The largest islands are: Socotra and Laccadive. The Masire Island (Oman) is interesting because of the huge number of sea turtles who lay eggs on the sandy beaches in summer. Come to the island of windsurfers and kites. The western part of the island includes corals and excellent places for diving. The Sultanate of Oman plans to build a 40-kilometer bridge that connects the mainland with the island snail.

The Laccadive Islands (Lakshadweep Union Territory), translated the name as a hundred thousand islands are located in the south east. In fact, they are few - only 36 islands (11 inhabited). The climate and the nature are very similar to the Maldives. These islands are known as a center for water sports. Here you can engage in diving, snorkeling, kayaking, rent a boat with glass bottom boat and pleasure craft. The archipelago has several limitations. This is due to the fact that virtually the entire population of this island is Islam. On the island there is prohibition on nudity, too frank bathing suits, no litter and coral collections and prohibition of alcoholic beverages.
Eco-tourism is popular on the islands. One of the major activities of the population is catching tuna. Tourists may also be interested in fishing of tuna.

Konkan has lush tropical nature.

What a sea is
A sea is a generic name given to the vast expanses of standing water, deep and salty, on the Earth's surface, which are usually united by a narrow ocean. A sea is also a part of the ocean, isolated land, islands or underwater terrain elevations, different from the hydrological and meteorological regime of an open ocean: salinity, water temperature, currents, etc. The more closed the sea dry land is, the more it differs from the ocean. A sea is sometimes an open ocean or a large lake.
According to the degree of isolation and according to the characteristics of the hydrological regime, the seas of the world are divided into internal or semi-enclosed seas, marginal and inter-island seas. From the geological point of view, the modern seas are young formations: they are all defined in outline, similar to modern, in the Paleogene-Neogene time, and finally took shape in the man-made. The deepest seas were formed in the areas of major crustal faults ( The Mediterranean Sea). Shallow seas have flooded waters in the oceans outlying parts of the continents in their lowered or increased sea level and are usually on the continental shelf. A seaside is a narrow part of shallow seas and oceans, including the drying zone at a low tide.
The most important seas
In all there are 54 seas, but the most important seas are probably these: The Baltic Sea, The North Sea, The Black Sea, The Mediterranean Sea, The Marmara Sea, The Aegean Sea, The Caspian Sea, The Azov Sea, The Ligurian Sea, The Tyrrhenian Sea, The Ionian Sea, The Adriatic Sea, The Norwegian Sea, The Red Sea, The Caribbean Sea, The Labrador Sea, Beaufort, Bering, Philippines, The Yellow Sea, The Sea of Japan, China South and East Celebes and Sulu (the Philippines), Saudi, Laccadive, Maldives, Tasman, Timor, Arafura (in Australia) The Coral Sea, Bismarck and the Solomon Sea.
The Marmara Sea is the smallest sea, the largest sea is the Sargasso. The saltiest sea is the Red Sea. Because of the lack of a river flow, the water of the Red Sea is one of the most transparent. The visibility in the water is of a few tens of meters. The Red Sea also occupies a top position in the list of the warmest seas, with temperatures up to 32 degrees. The sea is very popular with snorkellers. Some seas are named by the color of the sea, for example, the same Red Sea is named for the brown microalgae, which give the water a reddish hue. The Black Sea is named due to the fact that if you omit the depth of any object, it will be covered with a black coating (hydrogen sulphide salt dark color). The Sargasso Sea due to the green of the large amount of algae. The Baltic Sea is called golden because the water dissolved in the sea several times more gold than in other seas, six times higher than in the Black Sea. In all the seas and oceans were dissolved 15 - 25 billion pounds of gold.
