Ireland's Ocean Economy Survey 2022

Date Released: 23 June 2022

The Marine Institute and 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 the reports section of our website. The survey will be open over the months of June and July with the results published later this year. The survey is available at

In addition to general economic figures collected, this year's survey includes a section on the impact of COVID-19 and other external factors affecting marine businesses.
