    The Bay of Fundy - One of the marine wonders of the world

    The enormous tides of the Bay of Fundy are truly one of the world's great natural wonders.

    One hundred billion tonnes of water flows into and out of the Bay on an average tide, twice a day, creating rip-currents, seething up-wellings, swirling whirlpools and a tidal range reaching 16m (53 ft) at the head of the Bay. The volume of water receding & flowing is estimated to be 2000 times greater than the daily discharge of the Gulf of St. Lawrence (Thurston, 1994). The immense energy of the tides powers a highly productive, rich and diverse natural ecosystem, in turn shaping the environment, the economy and the culture of the Fundy region.

    Port au Choix National Historic Site of Canada

    About 2800 years before present (B.P.), several hundred years after the Maritime Archaic Indians had abandoned the area, the Groswater Paleoeskimos arrived at Port au Choix. These people originating from the Arctic may have moved south to Newfoundland during a period of climatic cooling. Coming from the Arctic, the Groswater Paleoeskimos may have been culturally better adapted and had better technology to exploit the marine resources during a period of a colder climate. More...
