Baltic Sea is not part of the Mediterranean. Mediterranean is between Africa and Europe while Baltic is bordering Poland, Germany, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia and Russia. Baltic is like northern Europe and Mediterranean is southern Europe. These people sometimes that say dumb things.

It depends on where you say it stops. If you include the Mandeb Strait as part of the sea, then there's eight. But if you exclude it, then you drop Djbouti.

Caspian sea is considered to be a lake in most of the quizzes. It has been living a bit of a schizo life though lately. What does the quizmaster think? I`m sure I`m not the first to mention this. I don`t care either way.... over p.s Still a good quiz though

Please accept West Philippine Sea for South China Sea as the Philippine government requires using such name to refer to the sea that is west of the Philippines: http://www.gov.ph/2012/09/05/administrative-order-no-29-s-2012/

Agreed. The Andaman and Nicobar Islands are on the trench dividing the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. The Andaman Sea also borders Malaysia just north of the Strait of Malacca. Therefore, it should count with 5 countries.

I typed in "East" and it filled in Sea of Japan - what is the reasoning behind this? It didn't cross my mind that I'd also have to type in East China Sea, which I ended up missing. It might be helpful to put something like "includes marginal seas" in the description.

Same exact experience...I was typing in "East China" and it took it, I didn't realize at the time it had filled in the Sea of Japan. Kind of clunky.

trying not to be sensitive or anything, but countries like Korea and China take strong offense to the term, Sea of "Japan". So it would be great if you changed it to "East Sea" instead of Sea of Japan. thanks

Taking offence at something like that is just plain childish. East Sea is accepted though

Dec 14, 2018
so you are calling Koreans and Chinese people childish...ok. Well as a person living in Asia, it's a serious matter because of the 'Dokdo Island'. I'm sure you don't know about this matter since you think it's "childish", Japan is falsely advertising to the world that the island, which is historically Korean, to be their country's island when it's under the Korean rule so that's why they are trying to change the name to "Sea of Japan" to think that the island, which is apparently on the sea of "japan" to make it look like the rightful owner is Japan, itself. What's actually "childish" is the way Japan is trying to promote fake ownership over the island when it's in fact- not theirs at all. So learn more about the actual situation and educate yourself, rather than to just call a large number of people, "childish".

Nope, I'm calling people who get offended by the name given to a sea childish. I did not, and would not, label "Koreans and Chinese people childish".

So learn to read what someone is actually saying before lecturing them

I have never seen Chinese claim that it is "East Sea". Only Koreans. East sea to China is the East China Sea. On the other hand, I don't see Koreans boohooing about Yellow Sea, where they historically called it "West Sea". It is solely because they cannot stand when it has the name "Japan" to it, and I would call it a childish nationalism.

I know that seas are hard to define as they don't have natural maritime boundaries, but should the Arafura Sea be included. I would have thought it touched East Timor, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea (just) and Australia.

Darnit. I started to type "East China", but "East" gave me "Sea of Japan" so I assumed they were synonymous. So I missed two (East China Sea and Coral Sea) instead of just one (Coral Sea, which I never would've guessed lol)

The problem with accepting Adriatic, is that you then have the problem of Tyrrhenian (but probably only borders two countires) and Ionian - which i would have thought borders four - Italy greece malta and Tunisia. It is the problem of 'sub-seas' if there is such a term.
