All the reports from surveys carried out in various MPAs are available for download from this page. They are arranged in date order, with the newest at the top. 

Each report has been given a descriptive filename so you can search within the page to find reports on a specific site.  

Most of the reports refer to Marine Conservation Zones (including proposed and recommended, and Reference Areas) in England created under the 2009 Marine & Coastal Access Act.
