This is just a very compact but quite informative booklet addressing the most important aspects of marine piracy and armed robbery, known to be one of the most critical hazards of the modern international maritime shipping industry. The figures officially released by the IMB, standing for the International Maritime Bureau, reveal that the aggregate number of the attacks made by the maritime pirates keeps increasing.

The job of the seafarers is very tough and this risk adds to the difficulties faced by them during the voyages. Apart from the people who are under direct attack, the shipping companies are also affected every time the maritime piracy or robbery act takes place. It is absolutely necessary for the companies to do everything possible to provide safety of the each crew member on their vessels.

The booklet will give you some brief insight into the modern piracy and areas of high risk, three areas of best practice including preparation, containment and recover, and also some future prospects. We would highly recommend you to use this booklet together with the excellent video training set also available here, to get the maximum use of the materials contained in each source.
