Annapolis Tidal Power Back On

September 13, 2004 [] After two weeks of enjoying the peace of the Annapolis River in Nova Scotia, “Sluice” the humpback whale has returned to the Bay of Fundy. The last confirmed whale sighting in the river was Friday morning, September 3. Fishery officers from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO) made numerous sweeps of the river to check all of the areas the whale had frequented, and gave Nova Scotia Power the authority on September 8, to turn the tidal power generating station back on. Researchers from as far away as Alaska supported the Annapolis River attempts to coax Sluice out of the river by providing recordings of vocalizations made by humpback whales while feeding.
