Aquaculture and Fisheries (Scotland) Act 2013

Notice of intended forfeiture

194.Paragraph 2 of schedule 2 describes those to whom the Scottish Ministers must give a notice of intended forfeiture and prescribes what such a notice must contain. Where property has been seized following an inspection conducted under section 39 of the Act, and the Scottish Ministers have taken reasonable steps to identify the owner, the requirement to give notice is modified to one of taking steps to bring the contents of the notice to the attention of persons who are likely to be interested in it.

195.Paragraph 2(4) of schedule 2 limits the ability to forfeit property under schedule 2 to circumstances where the requirement to give notice of intended forfeiture have been complied with or it was not reasonably practical for this to be complied with.
