Irish aquaculture is experiencing a severe and unexpected impact due to the COVID-19 pandemic with market closures and disturbances having an unprecedented level of disruption.
Considering the specific characteristics of Irish aquaculture, IFA is seeking the adoption of urgent, powerful and extraordinary measures at Government and EU Commission level to prevent the COVID- 19 emergency from having irreversible negative impacts on the normal operation of Irish aquaculture in particular allowing flexibility of EMFF funds to be redirected and distributed as financial aid for the Irish aquaculture industry to assist them to deal with the COVID-19 crisis.
In an effort to assess the financial losses, IFA Aquaculture is seeking details from all IFA Aquaculture members in order to strengthen our case for the need of a financial package required for the sector to deal with the crisis – your co-operation with this will be appreciated.
The form, which is available to download from here, seeks details of quarterly turnover over the past 2 years (2018/2019) and the first quarter of 2020, as well the predicted quarterly turnover for the remaining 3 quarters of 2020.
Please complete the form with the details required and return by email to [email protected]
