Definition:

A tidal stream (or tidal current) is an alternating horizontal movement of water associated with the rise and fall of the tide caused by tide-producing forces. (IHO Dictionary, S-32, 5th Edition, 1169)

Approximate tidal stream rates may be given as discrete rate values at a specified interval before or after a high water.
