Fisheries Guidelines

Guidelines for presenting claims in the fisheries, mariculture and fish processing sector. These Guidelines set out what should be done following an oil spill and what sort of information is needed to make a claim for compensation, specifically to assist claimants engaged in catching, farming and processing seafood. A general practical guide to presenting claims for losses due to oil pollution caused by a tanker can be found in the Claims Manual published by the International Oil Pollution Compensation Fund 1992 (1992 Fund). This booklet is written specifically to assist claimants engaged in catching, farming and processing fish and other seafood to better understand if, when, and how they can make claims for compensation. Claimants from other sectors should consult the Claims Manual or check the publications section of the IOPC Funds’ website for other sector-specific guidelines.

These Guidelines set out what should be done following an oil spill and what sort of information is needed to make a claim for compensation. Please note that following these Guidelines does not guarantee that all claims will be successful.
