With the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic continuing, FRDC would like to assure our stakeholders that we are continuing to function as usual. We are taking a considered approach and actions to safeguard the health and wellbeing of all our people.

We appreciate that the pandemic is continuing to take a toll on many of our stakeholder through its disruption to businesses and lives. We hope that you all remain safe. 

We will review and update our policies and actions as often as needed and provide updates via this site. 

A report by the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) and funded by FRDC analysed how COVID-19 affected the seafood industry in Australia between January and June 2020, with the aim of using this knowledge to prepare the sector for future shocks. A follow up report is currently being prepared.
