35 & 37 fthm Bank are located east of Anatahan, Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas (CNMI). They are one of the many islands and banks that form the Mariana Arc. These banks were first mapped during reconnaissance surveys of banks of potential fisheries interest, and were located by charted soundings on navigation charts. They were mapped aboard the NOAA ship Oscar Elton Sette during cruise SE-10-02, during which one mission was to map important fishery resources of Guam and CNMI. No local names for these banks are known, and they are therefore referred to here by the navigation chart sounding from which they were located.
