1. Introduction

The impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on the economy is unprecedented in scale and scope. This survey was developed and carried out in order to understand the impact of the coronavirus outbreak on aquaculture businesses, sea fisheries businesses and recreational fishing businesses.

There are a number of business surveys which have been developed to this aim including the ONS's Business Impacts of Covid-19 survey. However, they don't provide the sectoral breakdown necessary to assess the impact of Covid-19 on the marine economy sectors assessed as being most likely affected.
