Bottom Substrate and Associated Epibenthic Biota of the FORCE Tidal Energy Test Site in Minas Passage, Bay of Fundy

Environmental data collected in the Fundy Ocean Research Centre for Energy (FORCE) lease area in Minas Passage, Bay of Fundy, during 2008-2009, included underwater video surveys and >2000 still photographs of the seafloor. This study used these materials and associated technical reports by Envirosphere Ltd to further examine the epibenthic faunasubstrate relationships for the purposes of quantifying baseline conditions prior to installation of in-stream tidal energy conversion infrastructure (cables, moorings and turbines) in the FORCE test area.
