In their overview of marine manpower, Mackin and Anderson (1976) noted that marine industries provide substantial employment opportunities throughout the nation. While acknowledging gaps in their data, the authors emphasized that little serious attention has been historically devoted to marine manpower, even though offshore oil and gas resources, recreation and seafood production had become critical concerns. New information is provided in this assessment, as well as a more detailed description of the marine employment data base and its accessibility. Collected primarily through a study of six New England states (Cormeer and Mackin, 1977), original employment estimates. Greater understanding and accessibility of employment figures, on a national, regional, state and local basis, can now be gained by using the improved methodology and data from the regional study. This increased accuracy means greater confidence in projecting the occupational needs of both the offshore and related support industries.
