    Pacific Ocean Introduction - 2005
    https://allcountries.org/wfb2005/pacific_ocean/pacific_ocean_introduction.html
    SOURCE: 2005 CIA WORLD FACTBOOK

      Background:
      The Pacific Ocean is the largest of the world's five oceans (followed by the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, Southern Ocean, and Arctic Ocean). Strategically important access waterways include the La Perouse, Tsugaru, Tsushima, Taiwan, Singapore, and Torres Straits. The decision by the International Hydrographic Organization in the spring of 2000 to delimit a fifth ocean, the Southern Ocean, removed the portion of the Pacific Ocean south of 60 degrees south.
