It is subdivided into the Gdansk Deep (or Gdansk Basin), the Western Gotland Basin, and the Eastern Gotland Basin. Within the Eastern Gotland Basin is the Gotland Deep (249 metres deep) which is an anoxic basin. The Western Gotland Basin contains Landsort Deep, which is the deepest spot of the Baltic sea (459 metres deep).
