Description

The COVID-19 pandemic and the measures taken to confine its spread have impacted fisheries and aquaculture production systems across the European Union (EU). This report covers the time period from March to September 2020 for all 27 EU Member States (MS). It offers: a summary of the available information on the effects of the pandemic; a limited quantification of the extent of these effects; an indication of how long they may last and what mitigation measures governments have implemented in order to contain the short, medium and long term negative economic effects on fishers and fish farmers. Knowledge gaps are identified in a further chapter.
