The study of seamen in a particular country offers the opportunity of examining various social and occupational aspects of a unique occupational community which has structural parallels in every seagoing nation. This paper reports the result of a study of seamen of the Israeli Merchant Marine and is based on parts of a comprehensive research project on Recruitment, Development, and Utilization of Manpower in Isrel's Merchant Marine, financed by the Ministry of Transportation, State of Israel. The purpose of the whole project was to advise the Ministry and the maritime companies regarding manpower policies designed to fill the shortage of professional seamen. It examines the extent to which social and occupational characteristics and job attitudes of seamen nin the operating departments (deck, engine, radio) are related to differential occupational behaviour. The second part of the study discusses factors related to differential occupational commitment of seamen.
