Restaurants and shopping malls have been shut across the country as part of social distancing measures, leading to the decline in demand for seafood. In the wake of the outbreak, now a global pandemic, India has followed in the steps of other countries around the world to impose travel and trade restrictions in an effort to slow the spread of the virus.
