AUSTRALIA - The head of Cleanseas has warned against Gulf pollution by threatening an 'inevitable' and 'huge' comensation claim would follow.

According to ABCnews, Cleanseas Tuna chairman Hagen Stehr yesterday addressed shareholders at the company's annual general meeting.

Among issues raised was a proposed desalination plant in the Upper Gulf and possible mineral exports through Port Lincoln.

Mr Stehr is warning that wild fisheries such as prawns are among those at risk and mining companies better get things right or face a big compensation battle.

"Nobody will stand by and just take it easy, everyone will be concerned, so we ought to in the spirit of cooperation, we have to do our assessments very, very thoroughly for the future, not just today or tomorrow," he said.
