Shark's fin dishes will no longer be served at restaurants owned and operated by Marina Bay Sands (MBS), the integrated resort announced on Wednesday.

The controversial dish will also no longer be offered at events held in the Marina Bay Sands Expo and Convention Centre.

The move is part of the company's global sustainability strategy that began in October 2013, according to its director of Sustainabilty Mr Kevin Teng.

"Removing shark fin from the menus across our different business units is a bold testament to our commitment to reducing our environmental impact," he said.
