The COVID-19 epidemic affects many industries, including the fishing industry. Fishermen have not gone out to sea for a few weeks, and fish are becoming increasingly scarce in markets and supermarkets.
It should be noted that the majority of fish in Morocco comes from the south of the country, where the fishing ports are more than 30 km from the cities. It is therefore difficult for fishermen to move in the evening, due to the emergency health measures and containment put in place by the government.
