The Fish Site has been acquired by Hatch Blue, the world's first sustainable aquaculture accelerator
The dawn of a new, blue era for The Fish Site
Founded by 5m Publishing, which is currently a Benchmark Holdings company, The Fish Site has grown steadily in recent years to become the most visited English language aquaculture news website in Q1 2020.
Georg Baunach, Hatch Blue’s managing partner, says: “We have been daily readers of The Fish Site for several years and have been impressed with its global and relevant content. Its focus on innovation and sustainable aquaculture, combined with its large international readership, makes The Fish Site an exciting addition to the Hatch Blue group. We are delighted to be able to support the evolution of The Fish Site as it continues to publish high-quality, independent news and features about the global aquaculture industry.”
Commenting on the acquisition, Rob Fletcher, senior editor at The Fish Site, said: “I’m very grateful to Benchmark for giving me the opportunity to lead the development of the site over the course of the last three years. In terms of both the quality of the content and the rising readership numbers, we’ve made a great deal of progress and I’d like to thank all my colleagues at 5m Publishing who’ve helped to make this happen.
