Amerra and Mubadala acquired joint control over Greek aquaculture companies Andromeda, Nireus, and Selonda. The Commission concluded that the transaction would have created the largest European producer of Mediterranean farmed fish (which includes sea bream and sea bass), with a strong presence in Greece, Italy, Portugal, and the EEA as a whole. The combined entity would also have been the only fry producer with a research and breeding program for both sea bream and sea bass, which lowers farming costs and improves fish quality. The Commission cleared the transaction based on the parties’ commitment to divest certain fish farms and hatcheries, alongside the transfer of the know-how in research and breeding programs.
