Davis Strait is the broadest Strait in the world.
Named after an English Explorer called John Davis.
Temperature difference in the strait gives rise to beautiful cloud streets.
Thousands of coral colonies and many types of sponges, sea anemones, etc. are found in the deep sea slopes of the strait.
The Davis Strait and the Baffin Bay possess large-scale commercial fisheries.
Over-exploitation is leading to a decline in the region’s fish population specially Greenland halibut and shrimp.
Around 16 port facilities are located along the Davis Strait e.g; Aasiaat port.
Davis Strait possesses rich reserves of natural gas and crude oil.
