Hari .U | Binil K.P

Abstract: The COVID-19 global pandemic shook the foundation of economies worldwide and almost brought the world to a state of cessation. It spread with an alarming pace, affecting millions of people around the world. The countries were forced to impose uncompromising controls on the people to curb the speedy spread of this pandemic, bringing the global economic activities to a near-standstill position. This paper is an attempt to analyse the impact of COVID 19on the fishing sector of Kerala, India. Every nation on the earth has directly or indirectly been hit by this pandemic. Every sector of all economies on the planet is wrestling with this pandemic, and there is no exception to the fisheries sector. The study was carried out by interviewing fishermen over phone due to the constraints that arouse out of this pandemic. Every fisherman was concerned about the work days they lost, the mounting financial burden and the total balance they lost in their lives. The community which is already considered as marginalised has again fallen deeply into the trap of poverty. The paper tries to analyse the livelihood issues of fisherfolk, changes brought about in this sector and suggest some urgent measures to be taken by the authorities.
