Abstract: 

The FORCE site in Minas Passage, Bay of Fundy, has tidal ranges of over 13 m and current velocities that regularly exceed 3 m/s. This makes it an attractive site for generating electricity from tidal turbine devices, but also a very challenging site from both an engineering and environmental monitoring perspective. However, with proper study design and analytical techniques, environmental monitoring can be successfully achieved. The aim of this study was to determine baseline Harbour porpoise habitat use in Minas Passage.
