I think that there is no scientific research in this sector. To address your questions, I recommend understanding the area of COVID impact on Aquaculture and Fisheries sector through the insights and technical reports available online from experts working at reupdated organizations. .
In general, directly in our country the greatest impact on the chains was a logistical difficulty in the transportation of inputs and outputs. Currently an economic crisis aggravated by Covid-19 has strongly impacted the fish farming chain. The scarcity of products has increased the cost of feed in this chain by 60%, for example.
Hello, here in northwest Mexico, the impact of course exists and is very evident. Usually, until 2019, the fisherman use to have a customer for all their sea products. Maybe their economies was not good enough but, they could sell all what they were fishing making a profit. Since Covid began in this area in march 2020, the fish and seafood sales came down significatively. This are my personal observations working with local fishermen an organizations in Kino Bay area and indians (Comcaac) fisherman.
@Precious Preye Ayawei, As we all know Covid 19 was an unpredicted challenge for the world and no sector got the time to plan for it, So our Fisheries sector also get affected due to this. First of all, due to its high dependence on International trade industry faced huge economic losses, supply chains of seed, feed and other aquaculture related items get's affected due to lockdown restrictions. According to report of CIFT, Kochi India, country marine sector faced daily loss of 224 crore during complete lockdown period and major share of loss (about 90%) was from mechanised sector.
Due to pandemic Covid- 19 period economically fisherman suffers for few months but fish health will improve. Capture in rivers and sea will improve percentage of availability of mature fish due to non transportation. Table size fishes will grow happily in aquatic media. Pollution level is also less due to Covid- 19 period. Depletion of fish catch shows steady decrease for last one decade. Now it will increase. 60% to 56% availability shows depletion of fish catch.
Impact of COVID-19 pandemic on aquaculture and Fisheries sector are immense. Some of the mention able effects are: (1) Very little fishing done at earlier phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, (2) High transport cost during the pandemic has a further disincentive to fish and fisheries, (3) The pandemic has had a great effect on fish markets as fish vendors had to stay at home due to health concern, and (4) Fish business became less profitable as fish price fell due to reduced demand.
A great impact of Pandemic Covid-19 was observed on Aquaculture and Fisheries sector due to lock down embargo i.e. restricted movement, sufferings from Corona, unavailability of labors and transport., restriction on flight and Cargo.
