2014

The investment obtained was sufficient to meet the day to day needs of SeaDragon but not to meet the needs of building an Omega-3 factory. In late 2013 and early 2014, SeaDragon raised $6.1 million to fund that building which had an estimated cost of $6.2 million at the time. As plans started to be developed, and awareness of quake-proof building needs and of future demands for Omega-3 were crystallised, the design of the facility, was ‘upgraded’ to a green-fields site with an increase in the estimated cost to $9.2 million.
