Decision ID: 000477

In October 1995 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee took the view that claims for loss of income from the catch of king and queen scallops in an area formerly covered by the exclusion zone established by the United Kingdom Government would be admissible in principle only if claimants demonstrated that there was a reduction in stocks that was attributable to the oil pollution arising from the incident, and that it would not be sufficient for claimants to indicate that the damage could have been caused by oil pollution.
