New York's maritime industry is a vital component of the state's economy. According to the New York Shipping Association, nearly half a million jobs (directly and indirectly) are generated through the operations of the Port of New York and New Jersey alone.
“The Port of New York and New Jersey supports businesses in one of the largest and wealthiest consumer markets in the world, and serves more than 35% of the entire population of our country. The New York Shipping Association commissioned this study to determine how this scale and scope supports the global shipping network, but seeing how every 1 job in our port creates almost 9 additional jobs in the region just emphasizes the industry’s impact on regional business and employment,” said John J. Nardi, President of the New York Shipping Association.
New York maritime employment includes marine terminals, shipyards, crane operators, vessel operators, tugboats, towboats, barges, ferries, cruise ships and much more.
Commercial fishing is also a significant part of New York's maritime industry. Major New York Commercial Fishing Ports include: Montauk, Shinnecock/Hampton Bays and Greenport.
