Lake Maracaibo

Lake Maracaibo is the largest lake in South America and many people consider it as a sea since "it is connected by way of a 54 km strait to the Gulf of Venezuela and Atlantic Ocean, but it is considered lake because its water is freshwater". Lake Maracaibo is located (10°39´N and 71°36´W) "in the centre of Maracaibo Basin". It contains "crude oil that makes the lake a major profit centre for Venezuela".
