The Working Group on the effects of extraction of marine sediments on the marine ecosystem (WGEXT) met in Faial, the Azores; Portugal between 22nd and 25th April 2013. Sixteen participants from nine ICES Member Countries attended the meeting. The objective of WGEXT is to provide a summary of data on marine sediment extrac-tion, marine resource and habitat mapping, changes to the legal regime, and research projects relevant to the assessment of environmental effects. The data on marine sed-iment extraction will be reported on a yearly base for OSPAR in an Interim Report. The other items will be addressed in the Final Report of the new ICES 3-year reporting period.
