Marmara Sea

Marmara Sea
The Turkish name for this inland sea is “ Marmara Denizi” which is in the Marmara region connecting to the Black Sea with the Bosphorus Strait in the northeast, and to the Aegean with the Dardanelles Strait in the southwest. It is located between Thrace and Anatolia and covers an area of over 11,000sq.km, is approximately 280km long from northeast to southwest, its widest point is around 80km and has a maximum depth of 1,355m close to its centre.

The islands within the sea are sources of marble and its name came from the Greek word for marble which is “Marmaros” and in Turkish it is “Mermer”, and the main islands here are Avsa, Marmara, Imrali, and near Istanbul are the Princes Islands; Buyukada, Heybeli, Burgaz, Kinali and Sedef. The salinity level here is slightly more than that of the Black Sea but much less than other oceans although at the sea bottom the waters are much more saline which is similar to the Mediterranean.
