Ethir Anduin

The estuary of the Great River Anduin

Map of the Ethir Anduin

Beneath Pelargir, the river Anduin was joined by the waters of Poros, and spread into a great delta more than fifty miles across. This was a border region of Gondor, populated mainly by fishermen.

There were fishermen dwelling within the Ethir Anduin who sailed out to catch the fish of the Bay of Belfalas. Presumably, therefore, there were various settlements and docks throughout the region, but none of these are specifically identified or named.
