Over three decades later, the Cooke family still owns and operates the business but has grown it into one of the largest innovative, fully integrated, diversified global seafood companies in the world. Its operations span North America, Europe, and Latin America, comprised of a deep value chain in Atlantic salmon, sea bass, sea bream, shrimp, and wild-caught fish.

GIS Ventures, Inc.

GIS Ventures is pioneering the application of aqueous concentrated dissolved oxygen solutions into medical and critical animal fields. The company’s base IP is a mass gas transfer system that can exchange nitrogen for oxygen in an aquatic environment increasing oxygen levels by 4 times and with zero change in total pressure.

GIS Ventures has identified dozens of potential applications that could benefit from super saturated oxygen solutions including areas such as wound care, organ transplants, and equine wounds. Peritus Group invested in and financed the R&D capital for the development of these new applications.

Gas Infusion Systems Inc.

Gas Infusion Systems Inc. (GIS) is a St. Andrews, New Brunswick-based innovator of unique aquaculture and transportation applications for fish health and welfare. GIS has partnered with a top aquaculture and pharmaceutical company in the commercialization of its solutions.

The company’s key technology is an aqueous gas exchange system that can extract nitrogen and replace it with oxygen in a 1-for-1 molecule exchange. The solution is bubble-less, super saturating fluids with oxygen while maintaining a constant total gas pressure. This creates an ideal environment for rearing and transporting fish.

Peritus Group has directly invested in and financed the development of GIS. We continue to support the founders in the expansion of their innovative solutions across the seafood sector.

Pacifico Aquaculture

Pacifico Aquaculture is the world’s first and only producer of ocean-raised striped bass.

Where we started

Prior to Peritus, the Founders launched a small business lender using proprietary software to source lending opportunities, later exiting its loan portfolio at a profit and producing attractive returns for investors. This was followed by an investment in Lighthouse Finance, an aquaculture focused asset finance firm headquartered in Norway. The Founders were instrumental in rebranding the business, expanding it into North America, Europe, and Asia, significantly growing its portfolio, and resulting in a 8x return to the Founders in less than three years.

While Peritus expands its investment mandate to other sectors and financial instruments, it continues to guide and support the development of Lighthouse.

The Founders have held key executive roles and contributed to the transformation of a venture capital-backed start-up to a billion-dollar business. The business continues to be a critical provider of business intelligence and research to a broad audience of hedge funds, financial advisors, and institutional investors.
