With its commitment to wildlife conservation, protecting the environment, and sustainable fishing, Costa Rica was the perfect destination for this group of environmental professionals to enjoy some spectacular fishing and take a much-needed break from their hard work. Environmental Standards’ Rock Vitale, David Blye, and David Thal enjoyed ocean-front accommodations in Jaco Beach during their most recent fishing trip. In 2018, Costa Rica announced a plan to make the fishing industry and tourism more sustainable benefitting marine diversity and ocean health. As a result, Costa Rica is a world-class fishing destination for avid anglers year-round. Popular species include roosterfish, marlin, sailfish, snapper, yellowfin tuna, and more.
