Akimiski Island in James Bay, Canada53.0N 82.1W
James Bay (lower left quadrant), in Canada, is 275 miles (443 km) long and 135 miles (217 km) wide. Here, it appears mostly iced over, as does much of the Hudson Bay, to which it connects to the north.
James Bay contains numerous islands, all of which are administered by the Northwest Territories. Akimiski, the largest island, has an area of 1,159 square miles (3,002 square km). The northern side of the island is framed by ice, while the southern side is not, showing bright green and golden colored sediments in the nearby waters.
