During the summer of 1973 a small scale biological survey was carried out on the estuary of the St. Mary's River in Guysborough Co., Nova Scotia. The purpose of the survey was to obtain information likely to be of value in interpretive programs based at Sherbrooke Village. The estuary appears to be well stratified with strong freshwater influence extending to the river mouth. Records were made of common plants and animals.
