No fishing in national parks

Photo by George Lepp/Getty Images(insidecostarica.com) - The Costa Rican government rejected the request of commercial fishermen to operate in the waters of national parks.

The Minister of the Environment Roberto Dobles asserted that fishing in protected areas is in no way going to be allowed.

The refusal is firm, even though the Abel Pacheco administration had given in to fishermen in order to avoid their threat to stage demonstrations and blockades in the Port of Puntarenas.

The current law bans and fines commercial fishing in the waters of national parks and protected areas.
