#3 "The guys we catch are getting younger and younger," said one navy soldier. "Look at this one, he can't be 17."

A French navy spokesman confirmed the capture of 11 pirates. "The pirates are currently on the Nivose," he said. "For the moment we don't have any indication of what the European Union forces want to do with these pirates."


That one's too small. It's below the limit. Toss him back in.

#6 In a bid to avoid the patrols, some pirate groups have ventured further out into the Indian Ocean. Several incidents have been reported recently in the Seychelles, a small Indian Ocean nation with a thriving tourist trade, which is a base for foreign fishing fleets.

Apparently the Somali coast guard has decided to attack the over-fishers at their base of operations.

#7 That one's too small. It's below the limit. Toss him back in.

Give him a dozen cans of food, but make him swim back. Put 'em in a drawstring bag, fastened around his neck. (Know how heavy a can of pinto beans or cream-style corn is?)
