Definition:

A tidal stream (or tidal current) is a horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide caused by tide-producing forces. (Adapted from IHO Dictionary, S-32, 5th Edition)

Approximate tidal stream rates may be given as discrete rate values for flood and ebb flow during springs.
