Norwegian krill harvester and processor Aker BioMarine, controlled by Norwegian billionaire Kjell Inge Rokke, saw its adjusted earning before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization (EBITDA) surge 11 percent in the second quarter of the year to $21 million (€20.9 million), mainly thanks to better krill harvesting and higher krill meal production.

Revenue for the quarter remained flat at $73 million (€72.8 million), while net profit reached $15 million (€15 million), a turnaround from a loss of $3 million (€3 million) in the same quarter last year.
