Anti-Shark Finning Policy

Anti-Shark Finning Policy

Resolution 3.01 of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) defines shark finning as “the pracatice of cutting off and retaining the fin and discarding the rest of the sharks body into the sea”. 

We are aware that shark finning contravenes the Code of Conduct for Responsible Fishing and FAO International Plan for the Conservation and Management of Sharks. 

For these reasons the company Blue Wave Fish Traders (Pty) Ltd, taking into account the management measures applied by the Regional Organizations (RFMO’s) and national and international norms for the conservation of marine life has established and incorporated into its tuna commercial policy the following points:

  1. We condemn and forbid shark finning.
  2. We avoid any commercial dealings with vessels which have been identified by the Regional Organizations (FMO’s) or by national or international authorities as practitioners of shark finning.
  3. We avoid commercial dealings with any company which has not forbidden and condemned the practice of shark finning.
