The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the world's five oceans (followed by the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean, and Arctic Ocean). Strategically important access waterways include the La Perouse, Tsugaru, Tsushima, Taiwan, Singapore, and Torres Straits. The decision by the International Hydrographic Organization in the spring of 2000 to delimit a fifth ocean, the Southern Ocean, removed the portion of the Pacific Ocean south of 60 degrees south.

Economic Overview

The pacific ocean is a major contributor to the world economy and particularly to those nations its waters directly touch. it provides low-cost sea transportation between east and west, extensive fishing grounds, offshore oil and gas fields, minerals, and sand and gravel for the construction industry. in 1996, over 60% of the world's fish catch came from the pacific ocean. exploitation of offshore oil and gas reserves is playing an ever-increasing role in the energy supplies of the us, australia, nz, china, and peru. the high cost of recovering offshore oil and gas, combined with the wide swings in world prices for oil since 1985, has led to fluctuations in new drillings.
