Item 1.01 Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement.
On December 30, 2020, Blue Star Foods Corp., a Delaware corporation (the “Company”), entered into a debt repayment agreement (the “Debt Repayment Agreement”) with John R. Keeler (the “Debtholder”), the Company’s Executive Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, pursuant to which the Company issued 796,650 shares (the “Shares”) of the Company’s common stock, par value $0.0001 per share (“Common Stock”), to the Debtholder’s designee, an unaffiliated party, as full and complete payment of the aggregate principal amount of $1,593,300 (“Repayment Amount”) due under four promissory notes held by the Debtholder (the “Notes”). All interest due on the Notes, at a rate of 6% per annum, had previously been paid to the Debtholder on a monthly basis. Upon issuance of the Shares, the Notes were deemed to be paid-in-full and cancelled. The payoff price of $2.00 per share was equal to the closing sale price of the Company’s Common Stock on the OTC Market Group’s Pink marketplace on the date of issuance.
Pursuant to the Debt Repayment Agreement, the Debtholder also released the Company from all claims arising from, or in connection with, the debt evidenced by the Notes.
Following the repayment of the Repayment Amount, the Company was still indebted to the Debtholder under additional promissory notes in the aggregate principal amount of $1,316,833.83, which bears interest at a rate of 6% per annum.

The information set forth in Item 1.01 of this Current Report on Form 8-K is incorporated into this Item 3.02 by reference.
The issuance of the 796,650 Shares of Common Stock described above was exempt from registration under Section 4(a)(2) of the Securities Act of 1933, as amended, as a transaction by an issuer not involving any public offering.
