If all goes to plan, land-based salmon farmer Atlantic Sapphire's listing on the fully regulated Oslo Stock Exchange will bring in a new pool of institutional investors, analysts told IntraFish.

The listing on the main stock exchange, the Oslo Bors, is scheduled to take place May 5. The move away from the smaller, less-regulated Merkur market will provide Atlantic Sapphire's shares with greater liquidity for both its existing shareholders, and give potential investors more confidence in the company's ability to raise money and its ability to trade.
