Sustainable aquaculture company Seafarms Group Limited (ASX:SFG) (“Seafarms” or “the Company”) is pleased to announce the company is undertaking a capital raising to commence construction for Stage 1a of its world class Project Sea Dragon at Legune station in the Northern Territory.

Project Sea Dragon remains a Tier 1 development asset of global significance and once fully developed the multiple-site project will become one of the largest black tiger prawn operations in the world.

This capital raising, undertaken by Bell Potter Securities Limited as sole Lead Manager, enables the Company to commence various construction activities for PSD that will drive towards first PSD prawn harvest by the third quarter of 2023 with first full harvest by the fourth quarter of 2023. All necessary permits and approvals are in place to enable construction to begin.

Mr Ian Trahar, Executive Chairman of Seafarms, comments: “the capital raising will launch Seafarms into the first construction activities towards making PSD one of the largest black tiger prawn operations in the world. We are at the beginning of creating a significant industrial scale food production business. Global demand for prawns continues to expand, particularly in Asia.

The genetics we have spent many years developing will result in a product with true premium characteristics both in terms of size and price”

“My endorsement and belief in the ultimate success of PSD has been consolidated through my strong participation in the current capital raising alongside the owners of Legune Station and strong support from a number of other long term existing shareholders.”

“This capital raising will transform Seafarms towards a potential multinational business and accordingly the Board has resolved to refresh the organisation with priority at management level and Board level to enable the best delivery of the PSD potential for all shareholders.”
