With the coronavirus pandemic forcing restaurants across the country to close, seafood markets that depend on those restaurants have collapsed.

Many industries are hurting from the economic effects of the pandemic. The seafood industry is taking a particular hit, because seafood's biggest single market is in restaurants, which have struggled to stay open.

Researchers at the University of Vermont and the University of California-Santa Barbara joined a team analyzing the size of the impacts. Easton White from U of Vermont and Halley Froehlich from UCSB are our guests.

They outline the scope of the issue and some potential remedies.
