Brooklyn, New York-based smoked salmon producer Acme Smoked Fish finalized a deal on Monday to acquire a "significant" stake in Danish smoked salmon processor Norlax A/S, creating a joint venture that will serve as a platform for the growth of the two groups in both Europe and the United States.

Terms were not disclosed, but Acme co-CEO David Caslow told IntraFish the deal is a continuation of the company's "aggressive growth strategy," and positions it to expand sales and brand presence in a new set of countries, while offering Norlax resources and raw material to spur its growth.
