The Caribbean Sea is an oceanic sea largely situated on the Caribbean Plate. The Caribbean Sea is separated from the ocean by several island arcs of various ages. The youngest stretches from the Lesser Antilles to the Virgin Islands to the north east of Trinidad and Tobago off the coast of Venezuela.

AsI understand the term "marginal sea" as defined in Wik, the Caribbean would qualify as such. If I am right, it should be added to the ones listed under "marginal sea" and should be so designated here. 1. I'm no expert on marginal and mediterranean seas, but based on what is elsewhere on wikipedia.... The American Mediterranean Sea (made up of the Caribbean Sea and the Gulf of Mexico) is listes as a mediterranean sea. And according to the second sentence on the marginal sea page, mediterranean seas are not marginal seas. So, no. --Gruepig19:52, 16 August 2005 (UTC)
Is it pronounced "cah-RIH-bee-uhn" or "cair-ah-BEE-un"? I often hear it pronounced either way on television and radio, although where I live (Florida), most people seem to use the first pronunciation. 1. Well, then, the answer is that it is pronounced both ways :-) PeteVerdon19:52, 2 January 2006 (UTC) It is pronounced the second way in the UK. This is am accent thing, like tomato and countless other words, SqueakBox20:40, 2 January 2006 (UTC) 1. The important thing is how people from the Carribean pronounce it.St jimmy11:48, 27 April 2006 (UTC) 1. 1.1. The article refers to the "alternative pronunciation" but doesn't make it clear which is which. Does it mean the British one ? -- Beardo06:28, 22 January 2007 (UTC)
Some thoughts: 1. Environmental issues: unique wildlife; major currents; weather (hurricanes & tropical storms); oil drilling 2. Legal issues: which nations own what portions of the sea. Are there any treaties covering this stretch of water? 3. Ocean traffic: Fleets based here; ocean liner visits; commercial fishing. Thanks. — RJH15:45, 27 April 2006 (UTC) 1. Definetely stuff this article needs... Btw, different sources have contradicting measurements of this sea as in total area and length and width... Is there a true source we can rely on? - Tutmosis12:56, 30 April 2006 (UTC) 1.

The article Caribbean Sea shows some signs of unawareness of Caribbean (which should probably be either Caribbean region or Demography and politics of the Caribbean). Cutting the Gordian knot would mean a merge, which seems practical: the distinction between the piece of water and the common aspects of the bits of land lying within it is subtle at best and perverse at worst, and likely by its nature to promote the kind of confusion that Caribbean Sea expresses. --Jerzy•t15:53, 31 May 2006 (UTC) No the Caribbean Sea is a distinct body of water. It is a purely geographic distinction. It should not be confused with political, demographic or economic relationships. It is not a region. Someone has wrongly decided that the Caribbean (a body of water) and the West Indies (a group of islands) are one and the same. Not so. The Bahamas and Turks and Cacos are in the West Indies but not in the Caribbean Sea. San Andros and the Corn Islands are in the Caribbean Sea but not part of the West Indi...

There is an unusual picture at the near end of the article, which is supposed to show the shores of one of the Caribbean beaches, but instead shows prominently a weird, almost naked man. The file is named "Dr. Love". I believe that this picture needs to be deleted, as it does not show very well the actual beach, and should not show people prominently in the picture, especially if it is the person relating to or the one who took the picture. Point is, remove it. It isn't a good picture. — Preceding unsigned comment added by LarryVlad (talk • contribs) 11:44, 30 March 2012 (UTC) 1. It's gone. But you could have removed it yourself, you don't need to ask.--Bazonka (talk) 12:09, 31 March 2012 (UTC)
The first paragraph says: "The Caribbean Sea is one of the largest salt water seas and has an area of about 2,754,000 km² (1,063,000 sq. mi.)."Please correct me if I am wrong, but are not all seas salty? Or am I misreading it due to some manner of speech I am unaware of? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 126.96.36.199 (talk) 22:00, 12 September 2012 (UTC) 1. Some are saltier than others, but yes seas are salty. I'll amend this sentence. Bazonka (talk) 06:30, 13 September 2012 (UTC)
