EP 16

Cathay Pacific announced that they were banning the transport of shark fin via an official statement released on 22nd June, 2016. As one of the world’s biggest cargo airlines, Cathay’s decision to stop transporting shark fin is likely to have a significant impact. In 2012, Cathay committed to only transporting sustainably sourced shark fin; this measure, although welcome, was insufficient given that sustainable shark products do not exist. A number of NGO and public campaigns were involved in Cathay’s decision to ban shark fin, including a petition from SupportHK.
