Description

 

The Caribbean Sea LME is a tropical sea bounded by North America (South Florida),

Central and South America and the Antilles chain of islands. The LME has a surface

area of about 3.3 million km2, of which 3.89% is protected, and contains 7.09% and

1.35% of the world’s coral reefs and sea mounts, respectively (Sea Around Us 2007).

The average depth is 2,200 m, with the deepest part, the Cayman Trench, at 7,100 m.

Most of the Caribbean islands are influenced by the nutrient-poor North Equatorial

Current that enters the Caribbean Sea through the passages between the Lesser

Antilles.
