Tretiy Island or Treti Island (Остров Третий; Ostrov Tretiy, literally: The Third Island) is a relatively large island in the western shores of the Shelikhov Bay, at the northern end of the Sea of Okhotsk. It is located 4 km to the south of a peninsula that encloses a small bay in an area that is largely uninhabited.[1][2][3]
