EXCLUSIVE: Blue Star Foods To Buy Gault Seafood For Undisclosed Consideration

What Happened: Though the deal terms were not disclosed, the Company will fund the deal through a combination of cash and equity. The transaction is expected to close in Q1 Of 2022.

Why It Matters: The Company says that Gault Seafood's RAS technology will allow to modify the molting cycle of the Atlantic Blue Crab and, therefore, harvest them in the off-season.
