Aquaculture data analytics technology firm Ecto has raised $7 million (€6 million) in new financing led by Rabo Food & Agri Innovation Fund and seafood-focused investment fund Aqua-Spark.

Ecto, which says it is working with some of the leading salmon producers on ocean and land-based projects, plans to use the investment to advance its position in the market for digital support tools for aquaculture in salmon and other species.

Existing investors Yield Lab and Vodia Ventures were joined by new investor Seventure Partners in the funding.
