ATHENS, Greece, June 21, 2018

Abu Dhabi-based Mubadala Investment Company is partnering with Greece’s aquaculture leader Andromeda and Amerra Capital Management to acquire majority stakes in two European fish farming companies: Nireus SA and Selonda SA.

Thor Talseth, managing director of Amerra Capital Management and Andromeda Group chairman, said: “With our focus on aquaculture and agriculture investments, we are excited by the synergies that can be created between these companies. We believe that significant value can be created by building on the comparative advantages of the Mediterranean aquaculture sector.”
