New projects for Nicaragua's Gulf of Fonseca

The National Port Company has announced the construction of four docks for use by fishermen and tourists on the coasts of Puerto Morazán, Somotillo and El Viejo.

Monday, July 28, 2008

José Genet Barberena, Manager of Ports Coordination for the organization, said the first dock will be built as part of the Tri-National Accord of the Gulf of Fonseca, in the port of Potosí.
It will be 100 meters long and 2.2 meters wide, built on piles of reinforced concrete. The borders of El Salvador, Honduras, and Nicaragua converge on the Gulf of Fonseca on the Pacific coast.
He said the planning has started on the other three dock projects. They will be built according to local topography at Los Lirios, Puerto Morazán and El Rosario in the Cosigüina Peninsula. The technical committee is about to begin consultations with fishermen and others to determine the final design.
