San Diego, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/10/2017 -- The takeover of Omega Protein Corporation is under investigation over possible wrongdoing.

The investigation by a law firm concerns whether certain directors of Omega Protein Corporation breached their fiduciary duties owed to NYSE:OME investors in connection with the proposed acquisition.
On October 6, 2017, Omega Protein Corporation announced that it had signed a merger agreement with Cooke Inc., a New Brunswick company and parent of Cooke Aquaculture Inc.
