This policy covers stock mortality caused by one of the perils in the policy document. Please note that this is a named perils policy therefore, in the case of a loss, it will be up to the policyholder to prove that the loss was caused by an insured peril.
Losses are considered on the production of mortalities.
Stock is insured as per the indemnity scale in the policy document. This is produced using various pricing models around the UK. Only the species of fish listed are covered under this policy however this, and the indemnity value, can be reviewed on request.
Unfortunately not, the policy will be effective across the site as a whole. This is because it would be difficult to ascertain if a loss had occurred in an insured or uninsured pond.
Although the indemnity scale lists a number of species that can be insured under the policy, a single species can be insured if desired.
In these instances, we will still require an inventory of the lakes for risk management purposes, however only the value of the carp will be used in the calculation of the sum insured.
