New MARAD Advisory on Somali PiracyOct 7, 2010 12:00 AM
Paragraph 7 of Advisory 2010-09 gets around to what I presume is the point of issuing an Advisory at this timeâthe ending of the monsoon season. "Vessel operators should anticipate an increase in piracy attacks from October through early December when weather conditions allow for small boat activity in the region." The Advisory then advises vessels to register for access to the European Union Naval Forces website (http://www.mschoa.org) to obtain up-to-date information on the piracy situation in the region, and concludes with MARAD point of contact information. This Advisory cancels Advisory 2010-05 of March 29, 2010, which also dealt with Somali piracy.
