Brunei

Brunei becomes the 1st country to fully ban shark trade.
Under the impulse of His Majesty Hassanal Bolkiah (the Sultan and Yang Di-Pertuan of Brunei Darussalam), the minister in charge of fisheries announced yesterday during the ‘Celebrate the Sea Festival’ in-conjunction with the Worlds Oceans Day 2013, that it will now enforce the ban on the catch and landings of all shark species from Brunei’s waters and thus cease the sale of any related products in the domestic market.
The importation and trade of shark products have been banned in august 2012, and will also be enforced.
