Located at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy, the Huntsman is perfectly positioned to access one of the worlds most productive ecosystems. The daily rise and fall of the huge tide stirs up nutrients that provide food for the drifting planktonic community. This microscopic plants and animals feed large schools of fish and krill; whose abundance in turn attracts whales, porpoises , seals and seabirds from all over the North Atlantic.
