A Dynamic Industry...Anchored Firmly In Hawaii’s Economy
Hawaii’s ocean industry is growing faster than many of Hawaii’s more familiar industries. In fact, it is now one of the highest revenue-producers for the state, surpassed
only by the visitor industry, construction and defense.Direct revenue figures for Hawaii’s ocean industry were estimated at $2.9 billion in 1992 (the most recent data available).
Industry revenues are projected to exceed $3.7 billion in 1998, surpassing projected construction industry revenues, according to Hawaii’s Department of Business, Economic Development & Tourism, Ocean Resources
Branch.All told, ocean industry now generates almost 10 percent of the gross state product and is expected to generate about one new job per day over the next several years.
Hawaii’s ocean industry is a vital lifeline for Hawaii’s economy. Ever since early Polynesians settled here, Hawaii has depended on the ocean for transportation,
recreation and fishing.Industry sources say 80 percent of the goods consumed in Hawaii are imported; of those, 98 percent arrives by sea.
It is estimated that for each person in the state, 200 pounds of goods
are flown in by air each year while almost 6 tons of goods are brought by ship.The ocean industry is also recognized for its contributions to other Island industries such as tourism, food service and defense
through such business activities as ocean recreation, commercial fishing and ocean R&D.
