Inarctica, Russia’s largest Atlantic salmon and trout producer and formerly known as Russian Aquaculture, is in the process of acquiring a trout fry producer it hopes can help the group mitigate the shortfall in salmon on the Russian market.

Inarctica is finalizing the details of the purchase of Aquaculture Breeding Center, based in the country's Kaluga region.

While Inarctica confirmed the company’s plan to acquire the new asset, it declined to disclose details.

"The deal has not been finalized, and its terms are being discussed,” a source familiar with the negotiations told IntraFish.
