The ill-fated outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic that grasped the entire world had not only restricted the movement of people worldwide, but also altered the human behaviour and consumption pattern by cause of the imposed restrictions. The human catastrophe left no stone unturned in toppling the world’s financial system by affecting all the sectors with aquaculture being no exception. The aftermath of this crisis urges the necessity to explore pathways that will not only enhance the sustainability of the aquaculture business but also help the stakeholders to rise above the hammering effects of the pandemic. Here we discuss how the freshwater pearl farming has been affected by the pandemic and if this can be considered as wake-up call to make it a feasible component of aquaculture commerce.
