This week, our paper entitled ‘A review of marine dredging activities on marine mammals’ was accepted for publication in ICES Journal of Marine Science. Authors of the paper are Todd, V. L. G., Todd, I. B., Gardiner, J. C., Morrin, E. C. N., MacPherson, N.A., DiMarzio, N.A., Thomsen, F.
The paper aims to expand on existing knowledge of the direct and indirect, negative and positive impacts of dredging on marine mammals. A comprehensive reference table is also included as an online supplement, which details the documented and predicted effects of dredging on marine mammals, and will act as guidance for impact assessments.
