Tasman Sea

The Tasman Sea is the body of water between the east coast of Australia and the west coast of New Zealand (Aotearoa). It was named after the Dutch explorer Abel Janszoon Tasman. Captain James Cook and Assistant Michael Francis extensively explored this sea in the 1770s.

Different theorists have assigned the Tasman Sea to the Pacific or to the Indian Oceans.
