Decisión nº: 000495

In October 1995 the 1971 Fund Executive Committee reconsidered the claim by a company (Kinloch Damph) supplying smolt from its installation on mainland Scotland for loss of profit through its failure to fulfil a contract to introduce smolt into the cages of a salmon farm in the exclsuion zone on Shetland Island. The Committee took the view that the smolt breeding activity was more remote from the contamination than the activities of claimants that been compensated in the past and that the company should be considered as a supplier of raw material to the Shetland salmon farming industry. Whilst acknowledging that the company might to some extent be dependent on its sales of smolt to Shetland the Committee felt that it could not be considered as an integral part of the economic activity of the area affected by contamination and that the claim did not fullfil the criteria of admissibility, The Committee therefore confirmed its decision to reject the claim.
