Bill could bring shrimp trawling back to Costa Rica

Thursday, December 17, 2015

Legal shrimp trawling could be returning to Costa Rican waters with a new bill up for debate in the Legislative Assembly.

If passed, the bill would undercut a 2013 decision by Costa Rica’s Constitutional Court, which found that shrimp trawling violated Costa Ricans’ constitutional right to a healthy environment .
