Marine Harvest Scotland fined for waste pollution Published: 28 July, 2005
MARINE Harvest (Scotland) Limited was fined £4,000 yesterday, for allowing fish guts, blood, scum and grease to enter the River Lochy in Fort William.
The company pled guilty at Fort William Sheriff Court to polluting the river on 9 March last year.
The case was reported to the procurator fiscal by the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA). Investigations were carried out by SEPA following a complaint by a member of the public.
Officers found a red liquid discharge and solid waste coming from Marine Harvest’s Processing Plant on Blar Mhor Industrial Estate, Fort William.
