Since early March 2020, the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted business as usual around the world with severe consequences affecting most industries in the Mediterranean and Black Sea region, not least of which, the fisheries and aquaculture sectors.
Two months after the preliminary analysis carried out by the General Fisheries Commission for the Mediterranean, which covered the critical early phase of the crisis, from March to April 2020, the GFCM is publishing:
Fisheries and aquaculture in the Mediterranean and the Black Sea An updated analysis of the impacts of the COVID-19 crisis
This updated analysis seeks to document the evolving situation of the fisheries and aquaculture sectors in the Mediterranean and Black Sea region, covering the period from mid-May 2020 to mid-June 2020.
