31 Dec: The Last Sailfish Release of 2020

Costa Rica is very active in billfish conservation. Local groups like FECOP the sport fishing lobby to the Costa Rican government pressure the restriction of commercial fishing practices that harm fish of touristic interests. Most recently purse seine vessels have been forced out 60 to 100 miles from the coast which has lead to a resurgence of sailfish, marlin and especially yellowfin tuna in the coastal waters
