Investment group Broodstock Capital now owns half of marine health player Akerbla.

The new owners aim to invest in R&D and expand the scope of Akerbla’s services internationally, Broodstock announced Feb. 1.

Broodstock Capital’s investment comprises share acquisition and a NOK 20 million (€2 million/$2.4 million)-equity injection.

The Akerbla investment fits into Broodstock Capital’s strategy of investing in “market leaders within niches of the supply chain to the seafood industry, and to own and develop

businesses in partnership with founders, management and existing owners,” said Simen Landmark, partner at Broodstock Capital.
