Shark conservation campaign on shipping companies

Hong Kong accounts for about 40% of the global shark fin trade. According to the Hong Kong Census and Statistics Department, cross border trade transportation falls into four categories: “Air”, “Land”, “Ocean”, and “Others.” Over the past six years, most of the shark fin imported into Hong Kong was via the ocean route, and in 2017, 86% of shark fin (by volume) imported into Hong Kong entered using the same route. The influence of shipping companies on shark conservation is undeniable.
