Impacts of COVID-19 pandemic on octopus fisheries in the Algarve

The coronavirus outbreak is impacting the global economy, including the fishing sector. The Cephs and Chefs team from UAVR is evaluating the economic, social and health impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on the octopus fishing activity and seafood value chain in Portugal, as well as the adaptation measures implemented by the industry to mitigate the impact of COVID-19. Semi-structured interviews with representatives of fishing organizations (POs, associations, fishers, etc.) were carried out in the Algarve, Portugal in March.
