21st June 2022: The Marine Institute and the Socio-Economic Marine Research Unit (SEMRU) at NUI Galway, are conducting a survey of marine and marine-related businesses as part of the regular reporting on Ireland's Ocean Economy. Although the CSO and other State organisations provide some data on marine related economic activity, there is a need to supplement this data with company surveys across a number of sectors (advanced marine technology products and services, offshore renewable energy, marine commerce and legal services, marine manufacturing, construction and engineering).
Previous ocean economy reports are available on NUI Galway's website here. The survey will take over the months of June and July with the results published later this year. You can take the survey at - https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/OceanEconomy2022
In addition to general economic figures collected, this year's survey includes a section on the impact of COVID-19 and other external factors effecting marine businesses.
