  1. What is the Salish Sea? I am unfamiliar with that designation. I have boated a lot in the San Juan’s and the southern Puget Sound and don’t recall a body of water called the Salish Sea.

  2. What great news to have another orca join the pod. But, even better news that mom and baby ‘boy’ are doing well. GREAT photos of both. Thanks Center for Whale Research.

  3. Jeff,

    The Salish Sea is the inland waterway that includes the Strait of Georgia, Strait of Juan de Fuca and Puget Sound.

    “Salish Sea” became an official name in 2009, when it was adopted by the Washington State Board on Geographic Names, the U.S. Board on Geographic Names and the Geographic Names Board of Canada. See Water Ways from Oct. 31, 2009.

    I found it interesting that the American Name Society declared “Salish Sea” the “Name of the Year” for 2009. That and a few of my thoughts are presented in Water Ways Jan. 13, 2010.
