PREMIER Fishing (PremFish) – the seafood specialist controlled by BEE company African Equity Empowerment Investments (AEEI) – has landed a bigger profit catch than initially expected. AEEI recently reported that in the year to end August PremFish not only increased its sales volumes, but also achieved better pricing, managed to secure good catch rates and efficient vessel scheduling and utilisation. PremFish consequently saw revenue growth of 15% to R401m and operating profit increasing to R75m (compared with R68m in the prior year.)
