Today in LA County, 117,000 workers are directly employed in the region’s “Blue” or “Ocean” economy, with an additional 82,500 jobs sustained by the industry, according to a report: The Ocean Economy in Los Angeles County, which was sponsored by LA County Supervisor Janice Hahn’s office and released by the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) and prepared in collaboration with AltaSea at the Port of Los Angeles. Based on the industry’s significant regional economic contribution, the LAEDC took the rare step, upon the report’s release, to add the “Ocean Economy” as a Southern California-based industry cluster that it will formally monitor, benchmark and track going forward.
