A MESSAGE FROM THE NATIONAL AQUACULTURE ASSOCIATION:
The National Aquaculture Association requests that aquaculture farms and businesses participate in the COVID-19 economic impact survey being conducted by economists with The Ohio State University and Virginia Tech, funding support from the National Sea Grant Office and the National Marine Fisheries Service. Information will be collected on how your farm or business has been affected by this pandemic. This effort is being repeated quarterly to try and capture the evolving impacts of coronavirus disease on U.S. aquaculture, aquaponics, and allied businesses.
Results from this study may be used to communicate the effects of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) to State and Federal agencies, in an effort to secure relief. Results from this study may also be published in the future.
Please participate in each of the quarterly national surveys during 2020. Even if you have not been negatively affected, that data is important to capturing the full effects of pandemic management efforts.
This is the Quarter 2 survey, covering the period from April 10th, 2020 to June 29th, 2020. This survey should take about 25 minutes to complete. No personally identifiable information (name, address, e-mail, telephone number, IP address, etc.) will be collected. All data from this survey will remain anonymous.
This survey will close at 11:59 pm (eastern time) on July 17, 2020.
Results from the Quarter 1 survey are available HERE.
If you would like a copy of the summary results, or have any questions about this study, please contact: Jonathan van Senten - firstname.lastname@example.org or Matthew Smith - email@example.com
Thank you for your support and participation in this project.
