Atlantic Ocean : Azores

Sea life from Azores

Salps like this one are found most commonly in warm or equatorial seas.

* The Azores is a Portuguese archipelago in the Atlantic Ocean, about 1,500 km (930 mi) from Lisbon and about 3,900 km (2,400 mi) from the east coast of North America. The two westernmost Azorean islands (Flores and Corvo) actually lie on the North American plate. The Azores' most significant industries are tourism, cattle raising for milk and meat, and fishing.
