Spectrum Brands, Tetra’s parent group, has acquired the assets of Omega Sea to add to its Global Pet Care portfolio of aquatics brands.

Ohio-based Omega Sea is a global aquatics nutrition business that manufactures and markets premium fish food products, primarily under the Omega One brand.

“Over the past 20 years, Omega Sea has relied upon a foundation of passionate hobbyists, retailers and employees,” said Jim Randall, president of Omega Sea.

“We truly value their support and are excited to build upon our legacy of innovation and unsurpassed nutrition.”

Omega Sea joins Spectrum Brands Global Pet Care’s consumer and commercial aquatics lines, including Tetra aquarium nutrition, water care and filtration products; Marineland aquarium filtration products, kits, tanks and lighting; GloFish fluorescent fish and accessories; and Instant Ocean sea salt.

“We are excited to add Omega Sea’s well-respected brands and unique products to our existing portfolio of top-quality pet products,” said John Pailthorp, president, Spectrum Brands Global Pet Care. “This investment will allow us to leverage Omega Sea’s strong relationships with US pet specialty and independent retailers and combine that with the scale and resources of Spectrum Brands to fuel growth for the future.

“Our priority is to maintain the current level of service for all of Omega Sea’s customers and consumers, and we will continue to operate each business with no immediate change to daily operations,” John said.
