Piracy DVD - Press Materials

The images below are stills taken from the DVD "Piracy - The Menace At Sea" and from scenes on location. Full size images can be viewed and downloaded by clicking on the links below. These materials may be used to promote awareness of the DVD and encourage its viewing as part of the overall campaign to achieve a greater level of compliance with the Best Management Practice guidelines, and thereby minimise the risk of seafarers and their vessels becoming unnecessary victims of piracy.
