Decision ID: 000221

In March 1993 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee decided that a claim by a London-based fish trader who marketed salmon farmed within the exclusion zone established by the United Kingdom Government was not admissible on the grounds that the loss was not a direct result of contamination but an indirect result of damage by contamination caused to a certain area around the Shetland Islands, and rejected the claim.
