This article focuses on the difficulties of listing commercial fish as endangered and radioactivity in the judiciary. There are now serious discussions within the European Union not only about emergency quotas, but also on long-term recovery plans for commercial fish species such as tuna and cod. Great Britain government has added commercial fish species to the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES ) lists. Now there is concern that the United Kingdom Atomic Energy Authority (UKAEA) may land up in court for allegedly contaminating beaches with radioactive particles from the reactors or reprocessing plant at Dounreay, Scotland. John McKeown, chief Executive of the UKAEA, confirms that the Scottish Environment Protection Agency is considering investigating a number of issues at Dounreay, with a view to regulatory action.
