Mayor of Grundarfjörður Björn Steinar Pálmason rejects that the responsibility and cost of cleaning up the rotten fish in Kolgrafafjörður on Snæfellsness peninsula lies with the landowners or municipality.
As reported earlier, thousands of herring died in the fjord in early December due to a lack of oxygen, along with other factors. Between 25,000-30,000 tons of rotten herring remain in the area, causing a stink.
The mayor has labeled the incident an ecological disaster and is concerned about how long it is taking to make a plan for the clean-up operation, visir.is reports.
According to an earlier report, the authorities had declared the clean-up the responsibility of the landowners. Staff from the Icelandic Marine Research Institute (Hafró) and the Environment Agency of Iceland are currently in the area and a conclusion on the conditions in the fjord is expected today.
