FishWorks has raised £2.3m through a share placing to accelerate its recovery plan.
Rescued by a new owners Luke Johnson and Gary Answorth in February, the company is currently reviewing a number of its restaurant sites for possible disposal.
At the same time it said the additional funds would allow it to roll-out more larger, and therefore profitable, FishWorks.
The company's new management team, headed by chief executive Paul Goodale, has already redesigned the menu, extended opening hours and introduced a central reservation system to return the firm to profit.
In the full year to 31 July the restaurant-cum-fishmonger recorded a loss of £1.55m on turnover of £10.7m.
The placing shares will be admitted to the Alternative Investment Market on 11 December.
