Kattegat

Characteristics

Description

The Kattegat  or Kattegatt  is the sea area bounded by the Jutland peninsula and the Straits islands of Denmark .

The main islands of the Kattegat are Samsø, Læsø and Anholt, where the latter two, due to their dry summer climate, are referred to as the Danish desert belt.


The central islands, banks, and shoals divide the Kattegat into two main channels. The E channel, which is most commonly used, is deeper than the W channel and is less encumbered with dangers.
