Costa Rica has launched a new fishery improvement project (FIP), focusing on tuna, swordfish, and mahi fishing. The FIP calls under the framework of the National Platform for Sustainable Large Pelagics Fisheries, with support from the United Nations Development Programme, and guided by the Ministry of Agriculture and Livestock, the Costa Rican Institute of Fishing and Aquaculture and the Ministry of Environment and Energy.


The aim is to involve all relevant stakeholders in the supply chain to accelerate sustainability among large fisheries. 

“This FIP represents a comprehensive effort in which all stakeholders in country and engaged companies in the supply chain are getting together in an innovative way to advance the sustainability of large pelagics fisheries in the country,” said Enrique Alonso, Latin America Fishery Coordinator for the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP).
