Looks like the coordinates have been swapped. The verbatim record (59.0333,-43.7) puts it off the coast of Greenland:


If we swap values (but not sign) of lat and long  (43.7,-59.0333) we get it off the coast of Canada


Zoom in and you see that the swapped values are in the "Gully Protected Marine Area"
