India’s 14 million workers in the marine fisheries sector have been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic lock down. Sustainable small-scale fishermen & women fish-vendors have faced severe disruptions due to shut seafood markets & collapsed supply chains. With no income for 60+ days, fishing communities were further devastated by Cyclone Amphan. In response, 700 fisher-women headed families were provided food rations. Reusable cloth face masks & hand-washing soaps were also provided as COVID-19 preventive measures. These two interventions accelerated resumption of sustainable fisheries production, thereby enabling livelihood continuity.
