Lithuania has been contributing to Atalanta since 2011 by appointing an officer to its operational headquarters in Northwood, the United Kingdom, and to the operation's flagship.

Another 16 Lithuanian officers are currently serving on the mission protecting a World Food Program ship carrying humanitarian shipments to Somalia.
