First - establish a policy of paying no ransoms under any circumstances. If you pay for something, you get more of it. This will reduce the motivation.

Second - give captured pirates drumhead courts-martial aboard naval vessels and hang those who are convicted immediately.

Third - burn their bases ashore.

Forth - invade and occupy Somalia, and install a functioning government.

"It ain't all buttons and charts, little albatross. You know what the first rule of sailing is? Love. You take a boat in to sea that you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of worlds. Love keeps her afloat when she oughtta founder... tells ya she's hurtin' 'fore she keens… makes her a home." Captain Malcom Reynolds, Paraphrased
