Buchan Gulf

Buchan Gulf is an inlet of the Arctic Ocean located in Canada's Northwest Territories. It is part of the Mackenzie Delta, which is an important part of the Mackenzie River system. The gulf is approximately 200 km (125 miles) long and 150 km (93 miles) wide, and is bordered by Banks Island to the west and Victoria Island to the east.

The area around Buchan Gulf is extremely remote and sparsely populated. It is home to a few small Inuit communities, as well as a variety of wildlife, including polar bears, caribou, and muskox. The waters of the gulf are home to a variety of fish, including Arctic char, whitefish, and Arctic cod.

Buchan Gulf has been an important area for centuries. The Inuit have inhabited the area for thousands of years, and the region has been a traditional hunting and fishing ground for them. In the late 19th century, the area was explored by British explorer Sir John Franklin, who named the gulf after his friend, Sir Alexander Buchan.
