    According to the Maritime Industry Foundation’s Maritime Knowledge Center, there are over 1.2 million people employed in the maritime industry, which is a very staggering number at least to me.  Since 2001 (and I don’t know when this article was written), over 15,000 jobs were created in the industry, and there are over 40,000 privately owned ships operating out of the United States.
