Scotland-based aquaculture technology company Ace Aquatec has secured a £2.5million (€2.5 million/$3.1 million) investment from UK-based cleantech investor Earth Capital.

Ace Aquatec specializes in in-water electric stunners, marine mammal protection devices, biomass cameras, and sea lice removal systems.

The Dundee-based supplier's current investors include Netherlands-based aquaculture investment firm Aqua Spark and Scotland-based venture capital firm Chroma Ventures.

Aqua Spark also reinvested an undisclosed amount in the company, Aqua Spark Investment Manager Josien Bakker told IntraFish.

The company will use the new investment to expand its presence and distributor networks and hire more staff.
