Bay of Fundy Primer

The Bay of Fundy is part of the Gulf of Maine, a highly productive ecosystem that is culturally significant and economically important to Canada. It is characterized by powerful tides which mix ocean water with fresh water from 60 rivers draining large watersheds from the provinces of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick and the states of Maine, New Hampshire and Massachusetts. Over 10 million people live in the Gulf of Maine watershed. The Gulf of Maine is one of the largest semi-enclosed coastal seas in North America.
