This industry comprises establishments primarily engaged in retailing fresh, frozen, or cured fish and seafood products (https://www.census.gov/eos/www/naics/index.html). Fish and seafood markets directly provided on average 18,000 jobs per year in the United States since 2001 (Figure 1). The five Gulf of Mexico States (AL, FL, LA, MS, and TX) contributed 21.8 percent of the jobs during the period. Mississippi and Alabama added 0.9 and 1.2 percent of the total number of jobs, respectively.
The combined wages, salaries, and proprietor earnings (at constant 2016 prices) of all the QCEW employees, non-QCEW employees, self-employed, and extended proprietors in the United States averaged $26,952 per person during the past 16 years (Figure 1). The annual pay of workers and owners in the five Gulf of Mexico States averaged $25,584 per person or 94.9 percent of the national average. Mississippi and Alabama workers and owners received average annual pay equivalent to 64.4 and 71.1 percent of the national average, respectively.
The 2016 industrial overview released by EMSI in October 2017 showed that among workers and owners in the United States, 54.2 percent were males (Figure 2). About 45.8 percent of the workers and owners were females. In the Gulf States, a similar gender distribution of workers and owners was observed.
The 2016 industrial overview distributed by EMSI in October 2017 also grouped workers and owners by race or ethnicity (Figure 3). Majority of the workers are Whites (66.1%), followed by Asians (16.3%), Native Americans or Alaska Native (8.6%), and Hispanic or Latino (7.7%). The remaining workers and owners are African Americans (0.2%), with two or more races (0.9%), and Native Hawaiians or Pacific Islander (0.2%). In the Gulf States, relatively more Asians (19.2%) and Native Americans or Alaska Natives (11.1%) are engaged in fish and seafood retail sales.
The 2016 industrial overview circulated by EMSI in October 2017 also classified workers and owners in the United States by age (Figure 4). About 22.4 percent of the workers and owners are 55 years old and above. The 45-55 years old workers and owners consisted of 22.2 percent of the total. The 35-44 years old age group added 15.6 percent of the total. About 4 out of 10 of the workers and owners are below 35 years old. The age grouping of the workers and owners in the Gulf States are almost similar to that of the national breakdown.
