Shrimp farming in Costa Rica is a small industry, and INCOPESCA wishes to encourage its expansion, decrease detrimental environmental effects, and increase exportation. In order to achieve these goals, this project identifies and compares current Costa Rican shrimp farming practices with best management practices recommended for Latin American nations. Information concerning current practices was obtained through farmer interviews. The main deliverable of this project is a manual of recommended good management practices constructed specifically for shrimp farming in Costa Rica.
