  1. Thank you Joseph.

    What has been the impact of Covid-19 on fisheries in your study area?

    You mention that technology has increased productivity. Have you also managed to look at the costs of technology and map out financial benefits along the value chain?

    1. Thank you Everisto. The impact has been very bad, particularly when the Chinese market banned the import of live seafood. the effects of market loss were compounded by the national lockdown in the country, that closed access to the local market. The lockdown was later relaxed, but the demand was very low to justify full-scale fishing.

      The financial investments and benefits were not mapped out, mainly due to confidentiality issues. However, the participants from different communities were all excited about the increased revenue.
