The Atlantic Ocean was an Earth ocean that bordered North America, South America, Europe and Africa.

Beneath the Atlantic Ocean were ocean trenches. The high pressure in these trenches meant that fish had to be specially adapted in order to survive. The Torchwood Hub had an aquarium containing deep-sea fish from the Atlantic Ocean. (PROSE: Slow Decay)
