January 12, 2014 Updated: January 13, 2014

Antipiracy measures have had a dramatic impact on the number of attacks off the coast of Somalia over the past 5 years. Activity reached its zenith in 2009 and 2010 when 46 and 51 vessels were hijacked respectively. 

The number of pirate-related incidents including boarding attempts and firing on vessels reached a high of 182 in 2010. However, collective action involving international naval patrols and new antipiracy guidelines for captains sailing in dangerous waters off the Somali coast have had a far reaching impact.
