Limfjørd

(lēm`fyörd'), waterway, c.110 mi (180 km) long, cutting across N Jutland, Denmark, and connecting the North Sea with the Kattegat. It is very irregular in shape, forming Løgstør, a lagoon 15 mi (24 km) wide in its middle section; its maximum depth is c.50 ft (15 m). There are several islands, notably Mors. Before 1825, when the fjord cut through to the North Sea, its western part consisted of several freshwater lakes that drained eastward into the Kattegat. The Thyborøn Canal keeps the western entrance of Limfjørd open. Aalborg is the chief port on the waterway.
