The Gully (Atlantic)
The Gully is 40 km long and 16 km wide and reaches depths of over 1 km. It is home to a resident population of Northern Bottlenose Whale, Purple sunstarfish and deep-sea coral. Other species of whales, dolphins, fish, squid and shrimp also live there. The Gully is threatened by offshore oil and gas.
In 2004, Canada designated The Gully a Marine Protected Area.
