Charging that the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station is violating federal law by killing off tons of fish and kelp, an environmental group filed suit Thursday against Southern California Edison Co., demanding a stop to the killing. The suit was filed about a year after a 15-year, $46-million study found that the nuclear plant south of San Clemente is killing tons of fish and kelp.

Claiming improper lobbying by Southern California Edison, an environmental group is seeking to overturn a ruling that Edison's San Onofre nuclear power plant isn't violating its federal pollutant discharge permit. Earth Island Institute alleges that Edison representatives met privately with Arthur Coe, executive officer of the San Diego County Regional Water Quality Control Board, before the board voted favorably for the plant on Feb. 10.

An environmental group sued the federal government Monday, seeking a ban on shrimp imported from nations whose fishing fleets do not protect endangered sea turtles. Earth Island Institute, which filed suit in U.S. 9th District Court in San Francisco, estimated that the suit could affect as much as $1.8 billion worth of shrimp--the entire amount imported annually. The move follows lawsuits by Earth Island aimed at restricting imports of tuna caught in ways that endanger dolphins.

Environmentalists asked a federal appeals court to reinstate an embargo on tuna imports from Mexico because Mexican fishermen have failed to reduce the number of dolphins killed by their nets. Joshua Floum, an attorney for Earth Island Institute, accused the Commerce Department of 17 years of foot-dragging in implementing the intention of Congress. The 1972 Marine Mammal Protection Act is being used by Congress to push the protection of dolphins.
