Merchant Marines Information

Merchant Navy refers to the merchant fleet of a country, which varies in capacity. Seafarers on merchant vessels, who hold various military-like ranks and responsibilities and are sometimes members of various maritime trade unions, are required by the International Convention on Standards of Training, Certification and Watchkeeping for Seafarers to carry Merchant Mariner's Documents. The following is a partial list of the merchant navies or merchant marines of various countries. Additional details on transport in present-day nations and states are available.

The British Merchant Navy comprises the British merchant ships that transport cargo and people during time of peace and war.
