“…Dredge spoil disposal often causes biological and chemical changes in the disposal area seafloor (reviewed by Morton 1977;Roberts 1990;USEPA & US ACE 1992). However, our results are comparable to some published examples where dredge spoil dumping has led to dilution of contaminated dredgings (Delo 1987), reduction of sediment toxicity and little or no negative impact on benthic macro fauna (Van Dolah et al 1984;Cole et al 1997;Gowing et al 1997).…”

“…Received 2 October 1998;accepted 16 June 1999 Foundation 1989; Ports of Auckland Ltd 1990; Roberts 1990;Foster et al 1996;Cole et al 1997;Gowing et al 1997;Mathew et al 1997) and overseas (e.g., Morton 1977;Van Dolah et al 1984) show that the resulting impacts on the environment will be site-specific, and may vary greatly depending on the nature of the dredgings and the disposal site.…”

“…The literature dealing with the effect of dredging on benthic fauna does not provide clear indications of the direction and duration of these changes. Most studies (van Dolah et al, 1984;Aldridge, 2000;Lewis et al, 2001;Ohimain et al, 2005) indicate a decrease in the abundance of macrofauna and changes in species composition and dominance structure, but in varying degrees, at times even minimal and limited to certain biocoenotic indicators (McCabe et al, 1998). Hence the aim of the study was to determine the effect of changes in selected environmental parameters induced by dredging on the abundance, composition and dominance structure of the Coleoptera fauna inhabiting a river, putting forth the hypothesis that the work conducted causes substantial modifications, including a decrease in the abundance and biodiversity of Coleoptera fauna.…”

“…Jones (1986) a decrease in species number after deposition, but a similar number of individuals when compared to that of the control site. However, some other studies have shown minimal (van Dolah et al, 1984) or nondetectable effects of sediment deposition (Smith & Rule, 2001). These last authors demonstrated that, even in a shallow area (6 m depth), dredgespoil dumping at Park Beach (Australia) had no detectable short-or medium-term effects upon the infaunal community.…”

“…Studies have demonstrated broad differences in disposal effects on the macrofauna, ranging from minimal (van Dolah et al, 1984;Radenac et al, 1997;Roberts & Forrest, 1999;Smith & Rule, 2001) to significant community-structure changes (Rees et al, 1992;Harvey et al, 1998;Roberts et al, 1998), indicating that the potential environmental effects of each dredging project must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis (Harvey et al, op cit).…”
