Gulf of California
The Gulf of California, also known as Sea of Cortes or Mar de Cortez (as known in Mexico), is the body of water that separates Baja California Peninsula from the Mexican mainland. It has a coastline of about 4,000 Kilometers (2,500 miles) and has an approximate area of 160,000 square Kilometers (62,000 sq mi). There are many rivers that flow into the sea, including the Colorado, Sinaloa and Yaqui rivers. Some coastal cities around the sea include La Paz (189,176), Los Cabos (164,162) or Guaymas (134,153). The region is also known to be rich in biodiversity, and an important commercial fishery, where many shrimp and sardine fleets from the city of Mazatlan exploit the local species.
