Quarter 2 COVID19 Economics Survey for Aquaponics and Allied Businesses


In response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), The Ohio State University and Virginia Tech are collecting information about how U.S. aquaculture, aquaponics, and allied businesses have been affected by this pandemic. This effort is being repeated quarterly to try and capture the evolving impacts of coronavirus disease.

This survey is being supported by funding from the National Sea Grant Office (NSGO) and the National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS). Results from this study may be used to communicate the effects of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) on commercial aquaculture, aquaponics or allied businesses to State and Federal agencies, in an effort to secure relief. Results from this study may also be published in the future. This survey will close on July 17, 2020.
