The above table doesn’t include oceans, which are much larger bodies of saline water than the seas (seas are parts of the oceans).

There are five oceans on Earth: the biggest one is the Pacific Ocean, then, in this order, the Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the Southern Ocean and the Arctic Ocean.

Did you know?

1. The Weddell Sea has the cleanest water of all the seas on Earth.
2. The Mediterranean Sea, being connected to around 60 countries, has played an important role in international trade and travel since ancient times.
3. Over 70% of the Earth’s surface is covered with saline water.
4. It is estimated that less than 5% of oceans have been explored.
