Piracy, armed robbery and other forms of maritime criminal activity continue to constitute a serious challenge to the global shipping industry as well as to stability and development in countries affected by these illegal activities. Especially the Gulf of Guinea is considered to be the most dangerous maritime region for the seafarers and shipping companies to navigate through.
