CONAPESCA helps not only to promote the conservation of marine species, also to benefit all commercial and sport-reacreative fishermen and reduce the conflicts among them.
Besides, the CONAPESCA builds the necessary infrastructure to develop the aquaculture and fishing activities.
In addition, CONAPESCA has strong relationships with national, international and regional investigation organizations, worried for the marine resources, such as the Latinamerican Organization for the Fishing Development (OLDEPESCA), the International Union for the Nature Conservation (UICN); the Permanent South Pacific Commission (CPPS), the Organization of Fishing and Aquaculture Sector of Central America Isthus (OSPESCA) and the Interamerican Tropical Tuna Commission (CIAT).
