Old Bahama Bay participates in the Shark-Free Marina Initiative.  Its purpose is to reduce worldwide shark mortality. It encourages shark conservation at sport fishing and resort marinas by prohibiting the landing of any shark at the participating marina. Its goal is to work with, not against, the recreational and commercial fishing community.

With this initiative, fishermen will not be allowed to bring sharks into a Shark-Free Marina for any photographic or trophy display purposes or for any cleaning or processing of the shark for fins, meat, jaws, or any other by-product. Participating marinas encourages fishermen who are determined to fish for sharks to exercise safe catch-and-release techniques.
