More nets pulled from gulf of Nicoya

Guardacostas officer said Monday that they had confiscated yet more illegal nets in the gulf of Nicoya. These totaled a kilometer in length, they said.

The nets were found in the vicinity of the Isla de Chira, they added.

The Servicio Nacional de Guardacostas said that the nets were illegal because the holes permitting young fish to escape were smaller than the law permits.
