COVID-19

On March 23rd, 2020 Virginia Tech Seafood AREC and The Ohio State University Extension initiated an online survey of the U.S. aquaculture, aquaponics, and allied businesses. This survey was designed to capture and quantify the effects of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on the aquaculture, aquaponics, and allied industries. The survey was distributed at the conclusion of every quarter for 2020, to attempt to capture the evolving impacts of COVID-19 over time. Sixteen Virginia Cooperative Extension Fact Sheets and accompanying Appendices summarizing the survey results have been developed.

Results were also disaggregated based on species and region of the U.S. as applicable.
