250,000 Jobs. $10.3 Billion Economic Impact. King County - One Great Maritime Industry.
King County, Washington, is the region’s center for workboats, the fishing industry and shipyards. It’s home to thousands of maritime businesses, which employ more than 250,000 people.
To support the growth of current maritime businesses and to attract new maritime businesses, local business associations, businesses, labor and government agencies have partnered together.
Our King County Maritime Matters. We have a great story to tell about a thriving and growing economic sector. About environmental stewardship efforts and community involvement. And about being a partner in solving regional issues such as freight mobility, transportation, land use, economic competitiveness and workforce development.
King County Maritime is not another association, it’s a movement to give the industry a voice. We invite your participation and support!
