Pacific Ocean

The Pacific Ocean was an Earth ocean that bordered North America, South America, Asia and Australia. The island of Salutua was located in the Pacific, as was the port of Honolulu. (PROSE: The Eye of the Giant)

The Pacific Ocean contained 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 Pacific Ocean. (PROSE: Slow Decay)
