Fishing to make a living during lockdown

Every year, from early March to late September, the fishermen of West Achaia throw their cast nets for fish, which due to their weight and price cannot be absorbed by the Greek market and are therefore exported to the markets of Italy and France. The closure of the borders due to coronavirus resulted in fishing boats staying ashore for two months or set sail for much less and smaller fish.
The damage for local fishermen is unprecedented.
