MCA Guidance for Long-Term Covid-19 Impacts

On the 18th of June 2021, the MCA published Marine Information Notice - MIN 663 (F).  Although this is not the core work or responsibility of D&S IFCA, we are able to share this information as it is in the best interests of fishers.

The notice is intended to help vessel owners, skippers, and company managers to:

  • Understand the long-term impacts of COVID-19 on fishers’ wellbeing
  • Recognise the stressors that their crew might be facing
  • Direct crew to expert help on a range of issues


Please click here to view the Notice.

A Help & Advice Leaflet has also been produced that includes a large range of contacts related to supporting fishers and their families. The Leaflet can be viewed here.
