Policy of our Tuna Company FISHCORP S.A. against shark fin shearing
Resolution 3.1 (c) of the International Seafood Sustainability Foundation (ISSF) defines shark finning as “the practice of cutting off and retaining the fin and discarding into the sea the rest of the shark’s body”.
We are aware that shark finning contravenes de Code of Conduct for responsable fishing and the FAO International Plan of Action for the Conservation and Management of Sharks.
For these reasons, FISHCORP S.A., taking into account the management measures applied by the Regional Organizations (RFMOs) and the national and international norms for the conservation of marine life, has established and incorporated into all aspects of its comercial tuna policy the following points:
1.- We condemn and forbid shark finning.
2.- We avoid any commercial dealings with vessels wich have been identified by the Regional Organizations (RFMOs) or by national / international authorities as practitioners of shark finning.
3.- We avoid commercial dealings with any company wich has not forbidden and condemned the practice of shark finning.
