From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Solomon Archipelago is a marine ecoregion of the Pacific Ocean. It includes the tropical ocean waters surrounding most of the Solomon Islands (excluding the Santa Cruz Islands, which are part of the Vanuatu marine ecoregion), and the waters surrounding the Bougainville, Buka, and Tabar Islands of Papua New Guinea.

According to the WWF/Nature Conservancy system, the Solomon Archipelago is part of the Eastern Coral Triangle marine province of the Central Indo-Pacific marine realm.
