Law Offices of Howard G. Smith announces that it is investigating potential
claims against Neptune Technologies & Bioressources Inc. (“Neptune” or the
“Company”) (NASDAQ:NEPT) concerning possible violations of federal securities

Neptune is a biotechnology company engaged in the research, development and
commercialization of products derived from marine biomasses for the
nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and pet food markets. The
investigation is related to allegations that Neptune misrepresented or failed
to disclose that: (1) the Company had installed larger acetone storage tanks
at its Sherbrooke, Québec, production plant, allowing it to store amounts that
exceeded those permitted by the certificate of authorization issued by the
Québec Ministry of Environment in 2002; (2) the Company failed to obtain
permission from the Québec government to commence expansion at the Sherbrooke
plant; (3) the Company had been chasing market share at the cost of its profit
margins; and (4) as a result, the Company’s statements concerning its
operations, growth strategy and financial performance and prospects were false
and misleading.
