This report presents the scientific findings of, and implications for subsequent monitoring based on the results from, dredged material disposal site monitoring conducted under a Cefas/Marine Management Organisation Service Level Agreement project round the coast of England during 2016-17.

The main aims of this report are: to aid the dissemination of the monitoring results; to assess whether observed changes resulting from dredged material disposal are in line with those expected; to compare the results with those of previous years (where possible); and, to facilitate our improved understanding of the impacts of dredged material disposal at both a site-specific and a national (i.e. non site-specific) level.
