Appeal Cites Records Showing Company Refused to Cooperate with Audits by the Department of Agriculture and by the Marine Institute

An appeal has been lodged against the Norwegian multinational Marine Harvest’s application for a salmon farming expansion in Bantry Bay that claims the applicant is not a ‘fit person’ to hold a licence.

The appeal cites records showing the company refused to cooperate with audits by the Department of Agriculture and by the Marine Institute in 2013 and 2014.

The claims are based on records released to Friends of the Irish Environment recently by the Commissioner for Environmental Information after the Department of Agriculture had cited ‘public interest’ for refusing them.
