Ecuador, Costa Rica, Colombia and Panama seek to create a control, surveillance and sustainable fishing corridor in the Pacific Ocean, said Ecuadorian Environment Minister Tarsicio Granizo.

"We have been in contact with the Governments of Costa Rica, Colombia and Panama to create a conservation corridor between the north of the Galapagos Islands, the Gorgona Islands in Colombia, the island of Coiba in Panama and the island of Cocos in Costa Rich, "the official government said.

It is a corridor of "control, monitoring and sustainable fishing. It is a corridor of security, that guarantees the migration of species that make routes of migration by the side of the north of the Galapagos islands", said the minister in the America radio.

Tarsicio Granizo said that this corridor represents a little less than a thousand kilometers between the Galapagos and Cocos, and noted that the idea is "a political and diplomatic decision" between the four nations.
