The Bering Sea is a marginal sea of the northern North Pacific Ocean located between Kamchatka Peninsula, the coast of Koryak Autonomous Okrug, and Chukotka Peninsula of Siberia in the west and north, and Alaska in the north and east. The Komandorsky (Commander) Islands and Aleutian Islands form the Bering Sea southern boundary. The Bering Sea was named after Vitus Bering, a Danish explorer who in 1704 went into Russian service and led two large-scale Kamchatka expeditions (1725-1743) to explore the northern North Pacific.
