Vessel owner pays C$70,000 for oil discharge

   A Newfoundland and Labrador provincial court judge ordered the Norwegian oil tanker “Nordic Fighter” to pay a C$70,000 fine for illegally discharging oil in Canadian waters.

   On June 22, 2004, a routine Transport Canada marine pollution surveillance flight detected three slicks in the wake of the vessel, then named “Front Fighter.” The vessel was traveling from Yorktown, Va., toward Whiffen Head, Newfoundland and Labrador at the time.
