Safety of tuna vessels against piracy

Despite the upturn in piracy on the coast of Somalia, the Spanish tuna fleet is calm because it maintains the security protocol established after the kidnapping of Alakrana on 3 October 2009, which has been successful to date.

The security protocol is based on carrying on board several security guards with heavy armament to protect the crew, who have a radar and visual system to control that any attacking vessel approaches the ship.
