Caribbean Sea Ecosystem Assessment (CARSEA)
The semi-enclosed Caribbean Sea is a distinct ecological region, bounded to the north by the Bahamas and the Florida Keys, to the east by the Windward Islands, to the south by South America, and to the west by the isthmus of Central America. The Caribbean is the second largest sea in the world and covers an area of more than 3.2 million square kilometers. Included in the CARSEA assessment are the Caribbean Sea, the islands within the Sea and bordering it, and the river basins of continental territories draining into the Sea.
