The North Sea is a marginal sea of the Atlantic Ocean located between Great Britain, Scandinavia, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, and France. It connects to the ocean through the English Channel in the south and the Norwegian Sea in the north. It is more than 970 kilometers (600 mi) long and 580 kilometers (360 mi) wide, with an area of around 750,000 square kilometers (290,000 sq mi).
The North Sea is a place where the floating deadly water can be so cold. You’ll die within minutes of falling into it, and where force 10 gales can turn a routine job into a life or death situation. But despite the dangers, thousands of people depend on it for their livelihoods. From coastguards to the so-called "rig pigs", from fishermen to search and rescue teams and ferry workers to marine biologists, these people risk their lives every day as they attempt to earn a living in these dangerous waters.
