The spread of the Covid-19 virus not only has health consequences: it also has a strong
impact on many economic activities, including the fishing and aquaculture sector. This
paper is an overview on the situation of the fishing and aquaculture sector in Algeria
during the coronavirus pandemic. The World’s Health Organization declared 1572
coronavirus cases, 205 deaths cases and 237 recovered cases in Algeria. The main
consequences are related to the supply of fry, food and hormones, difficulty in the sale of
fish, lack of human resources, and difficulty in movement.
