Air Pacific announces shark fin ban

Air Pacific has today announced a ban on the carriage of shark fins and shark-related products sourced from unsustainable and unverified sources.

Air Pacific’s Acting CEO Aubrey Swift said in future, the airline will only accept shipments of such products from sustainable sources where individual shark species are not threatened and will work with stakeholders to institute an independently verifiable process to achieve this.  

Swift said the airline has conducted a month long review of its freight policies relating to the carriage of shark and shark related products.

Swift said the review highlights that they need clearer and stricter policies in place to ensure that suppliers only ship sustainably sourced shark products.
