When will my claim be settled?

We provide a professional and prompt service that will consider each claim on its own merits.

How is the loss calculated?

This is at the discretion of the proposer and represents the limit that is claimable under this policy. If a claim is made then the limit is reduced by the value lost. If desired, a reinstatement premium can be paid to restore the First Loss Limit to the pre-loss level.

When should I report loss of fish?

Any losses that may result in a claim on the policy should be reported as soon as possible by phone, fax or email.

Once notification has been received Sunderland Marine and Aquaculture Risk Management will be able to provide advice on the most appropriate action to take.

What evidence do I need to keep during a loss?

All primary documentary evidence should be kept for review if the loss results in a claim. Photographs should be taken of mortality and sample weights of the mortality should be taken.
