(OTCQB: SHMP), the aquaculture Company that has developed and patented the first shrimp-focused commercially operational RAS (Recirculating Aquaculture System), today announced that it has engaged Lake Street Capital Markets, LLC (“Lake Street”), a research-powered investment bank, as its Capital Markets advisor given its deep understanding of the fast-growing aquaculture and ag-tech ecosystem.

In conjunction with this engagement, the company expects to complete it uplisting to the Nasdaq Stock Market in early third quarter 2021.
