Coastal communities stress importance of preserving mangroves | Coastweek

Mangroves are shrubs or small trees that grow in coastal saline or brackish water. Mangroves occur worldwide in the tropics and subtropics, mainly between latitudes 25° N and 25° S. In the year 2000, the area of mangroves was 53,190 square miles (137,760 km²), spanning 118 countries and territories. The unique ecosystem found in the intricate mesh of mangrove roots offers a quiet marine region for numerous young organisms vital in the oceanic food chain.

Counter piracy warship escort World Food vessel to Somalia Port

Counter piracy warship escort World Food vessel to Somalia port | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- The Italian warship ITS Euro has recently escorted World Food Programme (WFP) chartered vessel MV Apollonas in the Gulf of Aden. When chartered by the WFP, the vessel transports food-aid around the region. ITS Euro was on-hand to ensure she was able to transit the area safely without fear of pirate attack. At the beginning of the escort, ITS Euro’s AB-212 helicopter transferred a team to MV Apollonas in order to explain to her Captain the escort procedures to ensure both ships were kept safe. Thanks to these escorts the EU Naval Force has enabled the WFP to safely deliver humanitarian aid to areas of Somalia hardest hit by food shortages. As well as providing escort to vulnerable vessels, Operation Atalanta ships patrol the seas off Somalia to ensure pirates are unable to operate and seafarers are able to use the waters safely.

Safer seas will benefit Somalia Farmers and Livestock Exporters

Safer seas now benefit Somalia farmers and Livestock exporters | Coastweek

OFF SOMALIA -- During one of her counter-piracy patrols off the coast of Somalia, sailors from Operation Atalanta Italian warship, ITS Euro, recently met the crew of a dhow that was transporting livestock from Somalia to the Middle East. After warm greetings were exchanged, the dhow’s captain invited some of the Italian sailors on board to meet his crew and to thank them for helping to keep the Somali waters safe from pirates. The Italian team took some supplies with them to give to the crew, such as food and water. Operation Atalanta warships routinely patrol the waters of the Gulf of Aden and Indian Ocean to ensure that there is nowhere for pirates to hide and that the attacks that plagued seafarers off the Somali coast just a few years ago do not start up again. As the Somali coast is now safer, Somali farmers and livestock exporters have been able to increase their access to the enormous markets on the Arabian Peninsula. It is estimated that the livestock industry contributes 40 per cent to Somalia’s Gross Domestic Product, so ensuring that the trading routes remain open is crucial. PHOTOS - EU NAVFOR
