    The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The Student Federation of the University of Costa Rica (FEUCR) and environmental organizations will join in a rally against a bill that would allow trawling for shrimp.

    The protest will be held on Thursday, March 13th at 11:00 am in San Jose.

    The Constitutional Court declared in August last year that trawling was not being allowed in the country, unless it is established – through studies and measurements – that the use of new techniques would decrease the impact on marine ecosystems.

    Currently in the Environmental Commission of the Legislative Assembly is a bill that seeks to introduce amendments to the current legislation which could reintroduce this method of fishing.

    Estimates from environmental groups suggest that for every 60 kilograms of shrimp that are fished with the drag method, they discard 600 kilograms of other marine species, including several that are endangered.
