Where the Bay Becomes the Sea

  • 1986 ----- color ----- 28 min ----- 16mm
  • A wondrously fertile marine ecosystem has evolved where the Bay of Fundy meets the Atlantic Ocean. This area supports an impressive abundance and diversity of life from microscopic plants to the 60-ton Right Whale, one of the rarest marine animals in the world. Most of the world's deep oceans are barren and virtually all marine life depends on small food-rich oases like the mouth of the Bay of Fundy. Although such oases comprise only 5% of the ocean, they support over 95% of all marine life in the oceans of the world. Presents a powerful case for the preservation of this ecosystem.
