Murmansk Sea Fish Port is situated in the southern part of the Kola Bay at a distance of 27 miles from the Barents Sea.

Coordinates of its territory and water area of fish terminal are the following:

  • on South – parallel 68 55’46 of northern latitude;

  • on North – parallel 68 58’10of northern latitude.

The navigation in the port is performed day and night and all the year round. The alternation (interchange) of flood-tides and ebb-tides happens approximately every six hours.  The difference in the water level between them is 3,66 m. The working depth at the berths can vary depending on the ebb and flood currents. The actual depth at the berth consists of the working (declared) depth, height of the flood-tide  at present moment and amendment of the “Tide-gauge” with its sign (mark).

The Kola Bay is navigable all the year round (doesn’t freeze) but if winter is very severe the Bay can cover with ice for a short period of time. In ordinary winters we can see drifting ice on its surface.

Depending on the flood-tides and ebb-tides the density of water in the Bay can vary within 1,000 – 1,025%.
