UK - The UK competition authority, the Competition Commission, has provisionally cleared Pan Fishs proposed acquisition of Marine Harvest.

In a summary of its provisional findings published on 7 November, the Competition Commission indicated it has concluded that the acquisition is not expected to result in a substantial lessening of competition.

Pan Fish is pleased with this provisional finding. The Competition Commission is expected to issue its final decision and report by 20 December 2006.
