Corridor Area

The Discovery Corridor extends from the Fundy Isles Region of the lower Bay of Fundy across the northern Gulf of Maine, and has been situated with two objectives in mind: 1) maximize known information and 2) to traverse a variety of habitats. The area encompasses coastal areas, offshore banks, submarine canyons, and seamounts. In conceptual terms the corridor extends from the land-sea margin to abyssal plain depths of 6000m The corridor location was refined during 2004 through meetings of the Steering Committee, and in consultation with regional scientists.
