The Cook Strait
The Cook Strait is the name given to the body of water that sits between Kamchatka and the Canadian province of “Alaska”. It was first charted by Europeans in 1777 by the British explorer James Cook. The Strait is a desolate and foreboding place, yet is home to a variety of marine animals, including the Cook Sea Cow. In the 21st Century, only fishing boats from Kamchatka, Canada, the United States and Japan frequent the Cook Straight, and the Cook Sea.
