OTAQ, the marine technology products and solutions group for the global aquaculture and offshore oil and gas industries posted its final results for the year ended 31 March.

Aberdeen-based OTAQ acquired ROS Technology last year, which specialises in electronics and mechanical design in multiple industries including aquaculture and offshore.

“Despite the general market backdrop and challenges, this was still an extremely productive period for the Group with positive movement across all of our key financial metric,” said OTAQ non-executive chairman Alex Hambro.

“We are also well funded to continue investing in our product base and to consider any further acquisitions we view as a good fit,” he added.
