Hi,


As far as I know there are only 4 oceans in the world.  The biggest is the Pacific ocean, than the order is: Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean and to the smallest: The Artic Ocean.   Some consider the Big Chaina Sea an Ocean, may be that's the ocean you reffer to.

According to Oceansoftheworld.com, a decision by the International Hydrographic Organization in the spring of 2000 delimited a fifth world ocean - the Southern Ocean - from the southern portions of the Atlantic Ocean, Indian Ocean, and Pacific Ocean. The Southern Ocean extends from the coast of Antarctica north to 60 degrees south latitude, which coincides with the Antarctic Treaty Limit. The Southern Ocean is now the fourth largest of the world's five oceans (after the Pacific Ocean, Atlantic Ocean, and Indian Ocean, but larger than the Arctic Ocean).
