The Profile of Adriatic Sea

Adriatic Sea is arm of the Mediterranean Sea. Adriatic Sea is situated between the east coast of Italy and the west coast of Otranto, which the south extremity is the Strait of Otranto, which connects it with the Ionian Sea. The Gulf of Venice, in the north, and the Gulf of Trieste, in the northeast, are the principal Adriatic embayment. The west coast is comparatively low and has few inlets, and the north is marshy and edged with lagoons. On the east, the Albanian coast is steep and rocky, and the coast of Yugoslavia (formerly) is fringed with islands. The area of the sea is about 155,000 sq km (about 60,000 sq mi). The rocky east coasts are dangerous for mariners in the winter because of the prevailing northeast gales (bora). Trieste, Venice, Ancona, Bari, and Brindisi, Italy, are the chief ports. The fisheries of the Adriatic Sea are highly productive.
