"Fly Without Fins" is an international campaign by Shark Guardian and Sharkproject, together with other marine conservation organisations, to convince airlines to stop the transport of fins.

Airlines that transport shark fins contribute to this horrific trade in shark fins, exploiting our oceans and biodiversity, despite all appeals. Without the logistics of air freight, it would often be much more cumbersome and lengthy to transport the fins from the ports in South America to their destination in Southeast Asia. We assume that 85% of all airlines transport fins, only 15% of the airlines could guarantee not to transport fins when asked.

In order to get an overview of which airlines should be denounced for their irresponsible and greedy behaviour, the campaign "Fly Without Fins" was created. All major and well-known airlines of the world, in the association of IATA, are listed here and shown whether the respective company is involved in the shark fin trade or not. The aim of the campaign is to use public pressure to cut off the shark fin traders' trade routes.
