Market research firm Kontali acquired Seafood Trade Intelligence Portal (TIP) as it aims to strengthen its position in systemizing fisheries and aquaculture.

The acquisition not only builds up Kontali's seafood insight and intelligence capacity, but also expands its geographical presence through Seafood TIP's offices in Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Kontali bought the company off entrepreneurial civil society organization Solidaridad, making Seafood TIP a wholly-owned subsidiary under Kontali.

Kontali has been a consultancy to the Norwegian fish farming industry since 1987.
