What is the Salish Sea

The Salish Sea is an officially recognized region that includes the Strait of Juan de Fuca, the Strait of Georgia, Puget Sound, and all their connecting channels and adjoining waters, such as Haro Strait, Rosario Strait, Bellingham Bay, Hood Canal, and the waters around and between the San Juan Islands in the U.S. state of Washington and the Gulf Islands in British Columbia, Canada. The United States Board on Geographic Names and the British Columbia Geographical Names Office officially recognized the Salish Sea in 2010. The word Salish refers to the indigenous Salish peoples of the Columbia and Fraser River drainage basins.
