During the webinar we had several comments from the attendees. Here are some of their comments and questions.

From Gayan Ambegoda:

"Dampak Pandemi covid 19, nelayan Wakatobi Indonesia mengalami penurunan harga di bawah 50% dari harga normal saat pandemic. Transporttasi pengiriman ikan dari Wakatobi ke Kota Kendari terkendala kapal yang tidak beroperasi. Hasil tangkapan nelayan tetap ada, namun ikan hasil tangkapan ini hanya bisa di jual ke pasar local dengan harga rendah (tidak menutupi modal untuk melaut)"

"Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Indonesian Wakatobi fishermen experienced a price drop below 50% of the normal price during the pandemic. The transportation of fish shipments from Wakatobi to Kendari City is constrained by ships that are not operating. The catch of fishermen is still there, but the fish caught can only be sold to the local market at a low price (does not cover the capital for fishing)."

    From Feronika Manohas:

    "Dampak dari Pandemi covid 19 di pesisir Papua adalah menurunnya daya beli masyarakat umum dan pembatasan transportasi menyebabkan penjualan ikan terbatas."

    "The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the coast of Papua is the decline in purchasing power of the general public and restrictions on transportation causing limited fish sales."
