Georges Bank

Georges Bank is a large submarine bank (250km by 150km – 40,000 km2) at the edge of the Atlantic continental shelf between Cape Cod and Nova Scotia within the Bay of Fundy and Gulf of Maine tidal system.

The federal and provincial governments declared a moratorium on drilling on the Canadian area of Georges Bank until the year 2000 which was extended to 2022.
