DNV Assumes Full Ownership Of Ocean Ecology Following Åkerblå Acquisition


DNV has become the sole owner of Ocean Ecology, solidifying its position in the aquaculture and biodiversity sector. This follows DNV’s earlier acquisition of Åkerblå, the previous majority shareholder of Ocean Ecology.

Leading marine environmental  consultancy 

Established in 2013, Ocean Ecology is a leading UK provider of marine environmental consultancy, technical and advisory services to businesses operating in the blue economy.

Majority shareholding

In March 2021, the Åkerblå Group acquired a majority shareholding in Ocean Ecology, setting the stage for accelerated growth and expansion. Following DNV’s acquisition of Åkerblå in 2023, an agreement was reached, leading to DNV’s full ownership of Ocean Ecology.

By offering tailored solutions that integrate biodiversity considerations into operational strategies, DNV enables operators to navigate complex regulatory landscapes while fostering environmental stewardship and resilience in ocean-based industries.

Ross Griffin, Technical Director at Ocean Ecology said, “DNV’s leading position in the marine industry provides the ideal platform for the continuation of Ocean Ecology’s rapid growth trajectory spanning the full breadth of blue economy sectors, in particular offshore renewables, and aquaculture. Together, we are perfectly positioned to explore new opportunities and drive innovation in marine health and biodiversity assessments.”
