An assessment of the UK:

  • supply
  • demand

for trained seafarers to fulfil roles at sea and onshore over the next 10 years.

This evidence informed the Maritime growth study and suggested there may be a shortfall of seafarers to meet demand in the future.

We commissioned this independent assessment to address the specific recommendation that emerged from that study.
