Central America Fishing Worth $1.5 Billion a Year
The largest activities are tuna, shrimp aquaculture and inshore fishery.
Friday, August 7, 2009
In 2014 production in the fisheries and aquaculture sectors increased by 28%, but due to low international prices export earnings declined by 8% compared to 2013.
The Inter-American Tropical Tuna Commission has announced that the response to the request to increase the tonnage of fishing in the Eastern Pacific will be given in October.
90% of the tuna catch made in Costa Rican waters is unloaded in other countries, mainly Ecuador.
From July onwards, fishing boats in Central America will be surveilled via satellite.
