Seas At Risk together with other marine NGOs released a joint report outlining a framework for Covid-19 recovery measures in the fisheries sector. The report sets out ten principles – such as clarity and transparency, consultation and institutional integrity – to guide fisheries support policies and ensure long-term benefits for nature and people beyond emergency relief. The framework aims at helping policy makers develop and appraise response to policy options, leading to a healthier fishing sector and marine environment.
An Executive Summary of the report is also available.
