The Government of Antigua and Barbuda were undertaking a 1.5 million cubic meters capital-dredging programme for deepening the St. Johns Harbor to accommodate larger cruise ships. CEAC was commissioned by its’ associates to assess the dredging spoils disposal and the interactions with fisher folks. Hydrodynamic and sediment dispersion modelling was undertaken and calibrated with field observations. Recommendations were made as to the disposal sites that struck a balance between travel distance and safeguarding the fertile fishing grounds.
