Mexico City – The Angolan ambassador to Mexico, Leovigildo da Costa e Silva, was informed on the participation of Angolan teams in the World High Sea Fishing Championship, held in Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, in northern Mexico.

Leovigildo da Costa e Silva was briefed on the country's performance at the tournament by the leader of "Dragãos" team, José Garrocho, during a stop-over in Mexico, on his way to Angola.

Garrocho was speaking on behalf of his team’s captain and president of the Angolan Federation of Sport Fishing, Fernando Santos.
