Gundalow Company conducts programs in the Piscataqua Maritime Region. NH has the shortest coastline of any US coastal state. Just east of Rye’s Odiorne Point lies the mouth of the Piscataqua River. Here the ocean tide comes flooding in twice daily, driving salty currents upstream, through Little Bay and into Great Bay. Upriver the seawater is gradually diluted by the fresh waters of seven rivers, which drain 930 square miles of watershed – 25% shorelands of the estuary are in ME, 75% in NH.
