In this presentation, Dr Bernadette Snow, Nelson Mandela University, shares early inter-disciplinary research findings on the effects of COVID-19 and the related lock-down measures on the small scale.

The presentation identifies negative impacts on the sector in the broader context of national and international recognition of the small-scale fisheries, including under Sustainable Development 14 and human rights. The presentation equally discusses solutions that have emerged at the local level and through collaborations between communities and researchers.
