ABSTRACT
The article discusses the factors which motivated the Somalis to pirate and attack international ships in Somalia. It highlights the effort of Prime Minister Omar Abdirashid Sharmarke to ask for help to control illegal fishing of international vessels in Somali waters. It explains how illegal fishing in the country affected the lives of the local fishermen and has reduced their capacity to earn a living by fishing, which prompted them also to do illegal means and activities.
