Abstract The maritime economy includes the activities linked to the sea, namely:
- Marine resource extraction: living resources and marine minerals,
- Exploitation of marine space and of physical properties of marine waters (energy plants
- using marine water as a heat sink, marine renewable energies, submarine cable laying,
- maritime and coastal construction and public works, maritime transport, Navy),
- Exploitation of seascapes (tourism, leisure, boating),
- Resource processing (of living resources and oil & gas)
- Manufacturing and service industries supplying the above exploitation activities: shipbuilding, ship repair and boat building and their suppliers, oil and gas services, financial services,
- Public services: defence; State intervention at sea and public services to maritime activities and to seafarers; public and private activities contributing to the protection of marine and coastal environment; and public research.

Since 1997, the French Marine Economic Data report, published by Ifremer, includes a set of key sectoral indicators used to value the economic significance of the French marine-related activities in terms of production and jobs, their role in the national economy, their weight in international competition and the importance of non-market public services. The analysis of the marine sectors is carried out mainly at national scale but regional indicators are also presented when they are available. The European dimension of the activities is also taken into account.
