This report presents an assessment of the benefits available from the designation of a network of Marine Conservation Zones (MCZs). The assessment was conducted using two methods: 1) A national level analysis of the provision of beneficial ecosystem processes and beneficial ecosystem services available from the entire recommended MCZ (rMCZ) network; and 2) A detailed analysis of four case study rMCZ sites to identify changes to the provision of beneficial ecosystem processes and beneficial ecosystem services under do nothing, recover, maintain, and improve management scenarios. The four case study rMCZs were: Torbay, Holderness Inshore, Kingmere, and North of Celtic Deep.
