  • PG, Persian Gulf
    abbr. The Persian Gulf (PG) is located in Western Asia between Iran (Persia) and the Arabian Peninsula. It is an extension of the Indian Ocean. Historically and internationally known as the Persian Gulf, this body of water is sometimes controversially referred to as the Arabian Gulf or The Gulf by most Arab states, although neither of the latter two terms are recognized internationally. The name Gulf of Iran (Persian Gulf) is used by the International Hydrographic Organization. The Persian Gulf has many good fishing grounds, extensive coral reefs, and abundant pearl oysters.
