It has been reported that at least 8 Pirate Groups are active in the region and as they have more successes and grow in confidence we may see them expand their interests, broaden their operating area and also look for more lucrative targets.
All vessels in the area should review their security preparations in line with the ISPS code and BMP 4 measures.
Checklists, anti piracy bridge cards, training and advice are also available via ASKET resources page and the ASKET Maritime Security App.
Vessels at higher risk, low free board and low speed should consider carrying armed security.
