Infographic: headline impacts of the COVID-19 crisis on fisheries in Madagascar

Across the world, Blue Ventures has been mobilising to face the challenges of the COVID-19 crisis amongst the coastal communities that we work with. Whilst some of our team have been repatriated or are having to work from home, many of our field staff are still able to access field sites and provide vital support to the isolated communities with whom we work. 

The main objectives of our field teams are: to reduce community transmission of the virus; to protect the most vulnerable people; to strengthen healthcare systems and support continued delivery of essential services; and to adapt existing livelihood programmes to ensure that communities can sustain channels of income. More information on our response can be found here.

These headline impacts of the Covid-19 crisis on fisheries in Madagascar have been compiled from observations of Blue Ventures field staff across our sites in Madagascar. We will continue to collect information and update when we see significant changes in fishing activity, supply chains, prices, infractions or data collector’s work.
