They then would demand ransom money from the companies in order to get their crew back. Most of the first targets for the pirates were commercial lobster-fishing vessels.

The pirates also use up to 86% of their money on political operations, “The international community has mostly focused on offshore measures to fight piracy. These offshore measures have helped reduce the number of hijacks, but ending piracy would call for those costly measures to be expanded and made permanent” (Ending Piracy).
The greed of the bandits causes many conflicts with the people that are not in the war by taking away their food, shelter and thus causing illness. The villagers have nothing to eat because the bandits have taken it all for themselves. “But the third time they came back there was nothing to take, no oil, no food, so they burnt the thatch and the roofs of our houses fell in.” (page 120) as Gordimer writes. The people can not eat on their long journey through Kruger Park because although they find food to cook, they must not make a fire as it will draw attention to themselves. They have no food to take on the trip, so the people find fruit and eat it which results in illness, as it is poisonous.

Only for a few years that this town had provided job for people and the buildings that are now extra for the population is money just wasted. Overfishing in the long –term did not give people stability in job work and caused them to be bankrupt. To conclude the fishing industries was a total disaster mainly due to fact of the use modern technology killing fish faster than they can reproduced, the mismanagement of governments not thinking about the future and only caring about short term goals and the overfishing due to fact it made more money is short period of time.
During his journey, Kino envisions all of the terrible things the pearl does to him and his family, and he tells himself he will break the promise made to the doctor. These negative thoughts influence Kino to not reach the capital, and not to sell the pearl, and therefore not to find money to pay him back. Therefore, the doctor does not receive as much pay. the same goes for the other townspeople. The townspeople lay a lot of pressure on Kino and, therefore, lead to his and their
Somalia is one of the poorest nations in the world whose economy depends largely on their fishing industry. However, powerful nations have ruined the country’s fishing industry by using huge offshore fishing vessels and by illegally dumping waste material into the Somali coastline. The UN Security Council, the European Union, and NATO largely supported these acts through resolutions. Being confronted by these powerful institutions, a powerless nation, such as Somalia, does not have an array of resources to battle this exploitation. To make their voice be heard, a Somali Pirate culture developed in the past twenty years.
“There’s a real lack of public and political awareness of these issues,” says Alex Rogers (Levitt NP). Overfishing has caused job loss in one market because we don’t realize or understand what humans are capable of until it’s too late. How long will it take until overfishing causes the fish market to crash and never rebuild? We need to open our eyes to what’s going on in the world because “The disturbing truth is that humans are having unrecognized impacts on every part of the ocean, and there is much we have not seen that will disappear before we ever get a chance,” says Ron O’Dor (Levitt
But since everyone is fishing where they haven't been able to catch a lot of fish because they have fished most of them up so now they are overstepping their boundaries to go and catch more fish. Which is causing other fishermen to go into someone else territory and now their just fight over all the fish they keep catching fish at an alarming rate. Fish don't have time to reproduce and that is why the decline of fish is happening so fast right now. (IN text citation look over the whole paragraph) The consequences of overfishing are bad if we keep overfishing there will be no fish left and if we keep this up there will also be no coral reefs because fish have a big relationship with coral reefs. Because fish help coral reefs and keep them thriving and without fish, there would be no coral reef .
These small scale civil wars led to the destruction of the agriculture in Somalia, which in turn led to the deprivation of food in large parts of the country. When the international community heard of this, large quantities of food were sent to ease Somali suffering. However, clan leaders like Aidid routinely hijacked food and exchanged it for weapons leaving thousands to starve to death. An estimated 300,000 Somalis died between 1991 and 1992 (Clancy 234-236). US soldiers were later sent into Somalia to capture Aidid, but when the operation got bloody, displeasing the American public, Clinton withdrew troops (Battersby 151).
The Black Plague was not just harming the infected ones, it was killing off the healthy ones too because no one was able to provide food and if people did, it was for themselves. “Food and items that were available were high in price because the inflation in the economy” (Trueman).
