The feed litigation of Australian yellow kingfish producer, Clean Seas, against Gibson’s Limited, trading as Skretting Australia, was listed for trial to commence on September 30.
Clean Seas maintains that the feed supplied from December 2008 to July 2012 was taurine deficient. The company presented an Independent Expert Forensic Accountant’s report that assessed the quantum of the group’s claim to be in the range of $34.5 million to $39.1 million plus interest and costs.
Gibson’s Limited is defending the proceedings and has denied all liability to the Group. Clean Seas applied to the Court for leave to expand its claim in light of documents recently disclosed in the litigation by Gibson’s Ltd. If leave to amend the claims granted, the commencement of the trial may be deferred.
