What’s the shallowest sea in the world?

Sea of AzowThe Sea of Azov, known in Classical Antiquity as Lake Maeotis, or Meotida in various European languages, is a sea located on the south of Eastern Europe. It is linked by the narrow (about 4 kilometers) Strait of Kerch to the Black Sea to the south and is bounded in the north by mainland Ukraine, in the east by Russia, and in the west by Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.

The Sea of Azov is the shallowest sea in the world, with the depth varying between 0.9 metres (2 feet and 11 inches) and 14 metres (46 feet).
