Lucky Seafood, Inc. Settlement
Lucky Seafood, Inc. Settles For $6,000
In March 2022, the California Air Resources Board (CARB) and Lucky Seafood, Inc., with its principal location in San Diego, California, reached a settlement agreement in the amount of $6,000 for the company’s failure to comply with CARB’s Regulation for the Management of High Global Warming Potential Refrigerants for Stationary Sources (RMP Regulation).
Lucky Seafood, Inc. owns and operates a seafood market that operates one medium-sized refrigeration system, with the greatest system having a full charge greater than 200 but less than 2,000 pounds of a high global warming potential refrigerant. The system is subject to the RMP Regulation.
In 2019, Lucky Seafood, Inc. was referred to the Enforcement Division for enforcement action due to late or inaccurate reporting as specified in California Code of Regulations, title 17, section 95386(a). The investigation identified three years of violation for late reporting and late fee payment for one unit.
Lucky Seafood, Inc. came into compliance quickly, put into place policies and procedures to prevent similar issues in the future, and fully cooperated with the investigation. The total penalty amount will be deposited into CARB’s Air Pollution Control Fund, which provides funding for projects and research to improve California's air quality.
