The Musquash Estuary is one of many estuaries in New Brunswick in the Bay of Fundy and is located approximately 20 kilometers to the West of Saint John.  It is the only major estuary in the Bay of Fundy that has not yet been seriously degraded by human development.   On 17 June 2005, the Conservation Council of New Brunswick announced that the Musquash Estuary will be designated as Canada's first coastal marine protected area (see media release).  As such, there is much interest in understanding the circulation of water from the Bay of Fundy into the estuary.
