COVID-19 Impact

Market Exhibited Negative Growth Rate of -6.06% in 2020; Supply Chain Disruption Hampers Product Demand

As per the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), although the fishing activities across the world remained stable in the first half of 2020, several fish processing facilities operated at a 65% of capacity. Strict adherence to social distancing norms and disrupted supply chain due to the lockdown impacted the market significantly. The market reported a negative growth rate of around -6.06% in 2020. However, FAO also reported that panic buying led to the exponential sales of canned tuna owing to their high shelf life leading to a positive impact on the market.
