About Stable Seas
Because the world’s oceans are shared spaces, strong international cooperation and capable naval services are prerequisites for a secure maritime domain.
Threats like transnational organized crime, IUU fishing, and illicit maritime trades are facilitated by weak coastal economies and environmental degradation.
Problems like piracy, maritime migration, slavery at sea, smuggling and trafficking, and seafarer safety nearly always require transnational coordination and cooperation.
Ungoverned and unmonitored maritime spaces provide violent extremists with unseen routes for moving arms and fighters or generating revenue by sea.
