On Feb 24, 2016, a 35 kilometer long oil slick was spotted in the wake of the "Thisseas". The Greek shipowner Laskaridis Shipping Company was fined with one million Euros by the Brest Criminal Court on Jan 16, 2017. The captain of the vessel was fined € 30,000 for pollution caused by the bulk carrier. It was detected by a Navy plane, dragging a sheet of hydrocarbons with a width of 50 meters 340 km SW of Brest. At the hearing, experts of the Brest Ship Safety Center discovered that a valve on a dumping pipe had recently been handled on the ship. The prosecutor Eric Mathais had asked for a fine of one million Euros against the shipowner and 200 000 € for the captain.
