About us

PRETOMA is a Costa Rican non-profit NGO founded in 1997. We are a marine conservation and research organization working to protect ocean resources and promote sustainable fisheries policies in Costa Rica and Central America.

Costa Rica has an image as a conservationist country. Indeed there are many positive laws and regulations on paper in Costa Rica. However, marine conservation is very far behind land conservation here, and furthermore, many of the positive laws and regulations that do exist go unenforced.

As a result, we direct our efforts in the following categories:

Direct in the field conservation projects
Research and outreach onboard commercial fishing vessels
Public awareness and education
Litigation and policy advocacy
