The Salton Sea is a saline, endorheic rift lake located directly on the San Andreas Fault predominantly in California's Imperial Valley. The lake occupies the lowest elevations of the Salton Sink in the Colorado Desert of Imperial and Riverside Counties in Southern California. Like Death Valley, it is below sea level; currently, its surface is 226 ft (69 m) below sea level. The deepest area of the sea is 5 ft (1.5 m) higher than the lowest point of Death Valley. The sea is fed by the New, Whitewater, and Alamo rivers, as well as agricultural runoff drainage systems and creeks.

The fishery at the Salton Sea has been called among the most productive in the world.  The Sea has tilapia, gulf croaker, corvina, and sargo.  The tilapia weigh up to 3.5 pounds, and the corvina have weighed up to 37 pounds and measured 42 inches.
