Casa Vieja Lodge is right at home in a country whose national policy make it illegal to possess a sailfish. Guatemala’s fishing laws are exemplary of a strong national marine conservation ethic and of a country which is the region’s leader in billfish protection. Although always under test by commercial interests, the future of billfishing in Guatemalan waters appears quite secure.
Recently we had the privilege to work as part of a team to promote sailfish conservation. This conservation effort was well documented in the August/September 2013 issue of Marlin Magazine.
