Somali Piracy Yearbook For 2009

by The Editors of Mid-East Business Digest

Somali Piracy Yearbook For 2009 Synopsis

Once again, Somali pirates set new records in 2009 in numbers of attacks, in numbers of ships taken, and in value of ransoms paid. Merging and refining data from news reports and anti-piracy bureaus, this comprehensive yearbook collects every incident for every ship reported attacked in 2009 in the Indian Ocean and in the Gulf of Aden; it composites the fullest description of each incident; it records ransom data (and rumors); it describes ships' cargo and crew manning wherever possible; and it presents comprehensive lists and chronologies. Useful appendices include best practices for ships in piracy waters, guidance for the use of security teams, and factors tending toward pirate success. Additionally, it offers a comprehensive year in review chapter matching trends year-on-year and predicting 2010 developments. (Second edition)
