Out of a target population of 245, 160 respondents were identified as the sample size by use of the Slovene's formula. Systematic random sampling was used to identify the respondents to take part in the study. Analysis entailed frequencies, percentages, means, and standard deviation. Findings suggested that piracy along Somalia coast were high. The effect of piracy along Somalia coast in international trade was also high. The effect of piracy along Somali coast in international security was also high. It was also established that there was indeed relationship between the piracy along Somalia and inte~national trade which stood up (0.58). It was also established that there was indeed relationship between the piracy along Somalia and international security, which again stood at ( -0.68) and on the Pearson Corre!ation scale which was interpreted as negative and fairly strong relationship. Conclusively, there is still much hope for better prospects of voyage along the coast as appropriate measures are being taken by the transitional federal government to ensure safety and also more community participation is slowly picking up pace. The study recommends community policing, civic education, solving the problem of unemployment and offering more formal education especially to the youth.
