Commenting on the latest situation concerning the Shell oil spill in the North Sea, Bertie Armstrong, chief executive of the Scottish Fishermen’s Federation, said: "After a lot of public speculation about the impact of the Shell oil spill in the North Sea, Scottish fishermen have been more interested in the facts, and we are pleased that the results from initial scientific monitoring has shown that there has been no impact on fish.
“We are relieved that Shell appear to have managed to control the leak and that the impact of the oil spill on the marine environment has been minimal, although it is essential that the situation continues to be closely monitored."
