European Price Report - April 2020

Year published: 2020

The array of COVID-19 measures taken by governments aimed at slowing the spread of the virus, including business closures and travel restrictions, are hampering business activities all along the supply chain in Europe. European small-scale fishers, who mainly supply fresh fish to restaurants, have been heavily affected by the effective shutdown of the foodservice sector. Most of these producers are unable to pivot their businesses to target supermarket sales, which are currently favouring frozen fish suppliers. In Italy, for example, 90 percent of the fleet is currently tied up due to the COVID-19 restrictions.
