[STC002361] The Tasman Sea is a body of water that may be found in the South Pacific Ocean. It is the body of water that separates Australia and New Zealand. The length of the Tasman Strait from north to south is around 1,700 miles, while its width is approximately 1,200 miles. Named after Dutchman Abel Janszoon Tasman, the first European to encounter Tasmania and New Zealand, the sea was mapped by James Cook in the 1770s. Both Australians and New Zealanders call the Tasman ‘The Ditch’, using it the same way Americans and British people refer to the Atlantic Ocean as ‘The Pond’.
