Piracy Report

Piracy off the Somali coast has threatened international shipping since the beginning of Somalia's civil war in the early 1990s. Since 2005, pirates have threatened and seized many ships, and piracy has contributed to a rise in shipping costs and shipping insurance premiums and impeded the delivery of food aid shipments.

The International Maritime Bureau’s Live Piracy Map shows all the piracy and armed robbery incidents reported to the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre. For more information visit the IMB Piracy Reporting Centre.

For more information please contact the IMB on +44 (0) 20 7423 6960
